Forecasts are predicting worsening weather conditions this evening and into Tuesday, January 31. The Dallas-Fort Worth area remains under a Winter Storm Warning, and we are continuing to monitor the storm. Please note the following:
- Dallas campus facilities will close today at 3:30 p.m. CT. Please be careful when exiting the building, as parking areas and surface areas may be slick.
- Classes will continue as scheduled Tuesday, January 31 through a virtual format.
- The Dallas campus facilities will be closed Tuesday, January 31, and all employees should work virtually.
- Students on clinical/field work experiences will check directly with their onsite clinical supervisor as to operations and closure information and follow local government guidance. Any absences will be coordinated with their clinical supervisor and clinical faculty for make-up arrangements.
As of now, the campus facility will be open Wednesday, February 1. If conditions require a change in regular operating hours, we will notify our campus community through the University alert system (text message and phone call). Please also monitor your usa.edu email.
Class availability: All student online resources including Blackboard remain unaffected. Online faculty and students in areas affected or potentially affected by adverse conditions may experience Internet interruptions or unavailability due to weather. Online coursework should continue as normal when possible. Faculty will post updates on availability and course expectations. Students needing extra time or extensions on assignments because of severe weather should make those requests directly to faculty. Accommodations will be made as needed.
