9.5 Inclement Weather

Decisions on closings, delayed openings, and class cancellations for each site of the University of North Georgia are based on weather conditions and road conditions in the local area and surrounding counties. Conditions in other site locations and the status of classes in other locations, may vary significantly. Students and employees are advised to check conditions in their area before attempting to drive to class or work. Please do not drive if conditions in your area are unsafe.

UNG students who travel to other locations for course-related activities such as clinicals and internships should be aware of the inclement weather policy of the academic department of their major and, as appropriate, should consult with on-site supervisors or preceptors to make decisions about travel.

Students, faculty and staff may seek inclement weather information about each campus from the following sources:

  • University of North Georgia website
  • Television Stations
    • WSB-TV Channel 2
    • WAGA-TV Channel 5
    • WXIA-TV Channel 11
    • WNEG-TV Channel 32
    • WGCL-TV Channel 46
  • Radio Stations
    • WDUN 550 AM
    • WGST 640 AM
    • WSB 750 AM
    • STAR 94 (94.1) FM
    • MAGIC 102.9 FM

Because of limited options for input provided by radio and television states, it is likely that more detailed information can often be found at the website and on the 1400 telephone line than through the radio and television.
