Campus Safety

In the event of inclement weather, OSUIT will make a decision whether or not to close campus based on all available information.

If it is deemed necessary to close campus, classes may continue online at the discretion of faculty. Regularly scheduled online courses will continue as planned.

In instances in which OSUIT must close its campus or cancel in-person instruction due to inclement weather or other emergencies, the institution’s online classes will take place as planned. Classes that normally meet in person may continue, at the discretion of faculty, via online assignments, group or one-on-one video conferencing, or other electronic/distance learning means. Any such course activities will be communicated by faculty in advance of their occurrence via the Online Classroom.
