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
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.
