Indiana Tech's Winter Weather Policy

Given the forecast for the next few days, we'd like to remind you of Indiana Tech's winter weather procedures.
If it becomes necessary to delay or cancel classes, we will use several methods of communication to keep students, faculty and staff informed.

  • Text messages: Sign up for text messages regarding weather-related class cancellations at Tech Connection. There are different message groups for Fort Wayne and satellite campuses.
  • Our web site: An alert for campus closings will be posted on our home page with a link to full details on our emergency announcements page, http://www.indianatech.edu/About/Pages/announcements.aspx.
  • Social media: Campus closings will be announced on Facebook and Twitter. You do not need a Facebook or Twitter account to view these pages.
  • Broadcast media: We will provide campus closing information to local TV and radio stations.

If we announce a 2-hour delay, this means:

  • All classes that normally start before 10 a.m. are cancelled.
  • Staff and faculty who normally report to work at 8:30 a.m. should report at 10:30 a.m.

If we announce that the Fort Wayne campus is closed, this means:

  • All classes and campus activities are cancelled. 
  • Staff and faculty should not report to work.

The Fort Wayne campus will only be closed in extreme circumstances such as a power outage or an inability to safely clear parking lots. With this in mind, please take a closing seriously and stay home.

Because weather conditions may vary in different areas, please note that decisions regarding satellite campuses in the College of Professional Studies will be made on a campus-by-campus basis.
If classes are not cancelled, please use your best judgment regarding your personal safety in travelling. If you cannot make it to class, contact your instructor. Also, students are advised to check Blackboard and their student email accounts for information on individual class cancellations in the event that a faculty member is unable to travel.
