Tennessee Technological University offices will remain open during periods of inclement weather even though classes may be canceled.
In accordance with TBR policy, faculty, administrators and staff of TTU are expected to make every reasonable effort to be at their work assignment on time, taking into consideration the personal risk involved. Administrators or staff employees who anticipate arriving late, or not arriving at work at all, should notify their immediate supervisor of this fact as soon as possible and request annual leave for the period of absence. If faculty members must be absent from assigned classes due to inclement weather, it is their responsibility to notify the appropriate chairperson and/or dean.
If classes are not canceled despite inclement weather, students are responsible for any academic work they miss as a result of inclement weather. It is the individual student’s responsibility to take the initiative in making up any missed work, and it is the faculty member’s responsibility to provide students a reasonable opportunity to make up missed work. In the off-campus offerings, the students and faculty are all commuters. Furthermore, we have little or no control over the safety precautions taken at the off-campus sites. Thus, it is not unusual that such courses are canceled because of snow and/or ice during the winter. The decision to cancel classes will be made by the Provost. The information will then be disseminated as quickly as possible on the TTU website and through Text Alert.
