Notification of Weather-Related Schedule Changes

When weather affects the University of South Carolina Columbia Campus operating schedule, the University normally follows directions issued by the Governor for state agencies.

However, because faculty, staff and students travel to campus from across the state, the University administration may decide independent of any state decision that a delayed opening or closing is necessary.

Information about delayed openings or closings will be posted on the Internet at www.sc.edu as soon as it is available.

During non-work hours, employees and students who miss media broadcasts can call the USC Columbia Emergency Information Network at 803-777-5700 for a recorded message on delayed openings or closings.

To obtain current information on hazardous weather notifications affecting the state, go to the State Employees Weather Alert web page at http://www.scemd.org/scgovweb/weather_alert.html.

For more information about University policy and procedures during hazardous weather, please read the policy at: Hazardous Weather and Emergency Leave Policy (PDF) and the FAQ on Hazardous Weather and Emergency Closings.
