School Closing & Inclement Weather Policy

General Policy and Alerts

Official policies and alerts regarding the UMB campus closing come from the President's Office and can be found at

Pre-clinical Student Procedures

Any campus closings or delays are immediately applicable to year 1 and year 2 students. In case of such an event, the course directors will be in touch about plans to cover the material/exam in alternative ways/days/times.

Clinical Student Procedures

Clinical students should make every effort to report to their assignments regardless of campus changes if the student can do so safely in their own personal judgment. If the student is unable to make it to the assigned site safely because of the weather, please inform the team, course or clerkship director and the Associate Dean of Student Affairs. If a student is on an outpatient or elective rotation, the student should get in touch with whomever is in charge to assure that they plan to function as usual despite the weather before venturing in. If the campus is open and a student is unable to reach a site, the student may be required to make-up missed days. If the campus is closed or delayed in opening, students will not be required to make up missed days or time during which the campus was closed.
