University Closing Policy
The university will remain open and classes held unless there is clear and substantiated evidence to warrant otherwise. Determination of such conditions will be made through information gathered by the director of public safety.
Be advised that “snow days,” during which MSOE classes are canceled, are very rare. If severe weather or another event leads to the cancellation of classes, the decision to close the university will be made as early as possible on the day in question so that the closing information can be included in the local media closing reports.
The university announces cancellations in the following ways:
- via the Rave Mobile Safety Alert system (Current students, faculty and staff receive these notices. Learn more…)
- broadcast on Milwaukee area television stations during their “school closings announcements” including WTMJ-TV4, WITI-TV6, WISN-TV12, WDJT-TV58, and most Milwaukee-area radio stations including campus station WMSE-FM 91.7
- a notice posted on the MSOE home page
- a notice posted on MSOE’s official social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
