With the utmost of concern for the safety of all involved, Spalding University, on occasion, may close due to inclement weather conditions. Similarly, Spalding University may operate on a delayed schedule. When Spalding operates on a delayed schedule, we will provide a time of day when the university opens. Simply report to wherever you would usually be at that time and day. For example, on a delayed schedule the university may open at 10 a.m. If at 10 a.m. you would ordinarily be in a 9:20 class that ends at 10:50 a.m., then you should go to that 9:20 class at 10 a.m., and it will end at its regularly scheduled time of 10:50 a.m. You will follow a regular schedule from that point forward. All classes that end before 10 a.m. will be cancelled for that day.
Foremost, in the event of a campus closing or delay, we encourage each student to make the best choice for his or her safety.
