Communicating With Your Professor When the Campus is Closed
Professors provide contact information on their course syllabus. Professors may communicate closure information and assignments using your student email account (it’s free!).

Check your student email account frequently whenever the campus is closed. In most cases your professor will expect you to complete assignments listed on the course syllabus, even if the class is not able to meet. Contact your professor if you have specific questions about class assignments.
