Has My Class Been Cancelled for Weather?

Winter weather means cancelled classes — it’s as simple as that. Whether it’s a snowstorm, icy streets, or a sick instructor, each winter Continuing Educations has to cancel a few classes.CE Building

How can you make sure you find out about your class? Here are four things you can do to check if your class has been cancelled:

1) Get automatic weather cancellation updates through our Twitter feeds. You can sign up for Twitter and follow “@CUEveningAlerts” or “@CUContinuingEd.” Change the settings so that updates from CUEveningAlerts are sent to your mobile phone. The Evening Alerts will not tweet about anything other than a class cancellation. When you are done with the semester, you can unfollow CUEveningAlerts.

Whether it is snow or instructor illness, your best way to know if your Continuing Ed evening class is cancelled is to sign up to follow “@CUEveningAlerts” on Twitter.

2) Check for signs posted outside of the classroom next to the door.

3) Check the message on the Continuing Education’s Severe Weather/Course Cancellation phone line. All you have to do is call 303-735-5000 to hear an up-to-date recording of what classes have been cancelled.

4) Check your e-mail. We will e-mail you if your class is cancelled. You need to make sure we have the best e-mail address to use to reach you.

For university-wide cancellations and other emergency alerts, sign up for CU-Boulder’s real-time Campus Alerts.
