School Closings

The administration carefully considers student safety, weather reports, and the ability to clear campus parking when deciding on inclement weather closings. Every effort is made to post closings by 7 a.m. for day classes and 3 p.m. for evening classes, but allowances must be made for changing weather and road conditions. Announcements are posted on:

Channel 3 WFSB-TV
Channel 30 WVIT-TV
Channel 61 WTIC-TV FOX CT

Students can also check the homepage of the website (www.goodwin.edu), Facebook, and Twitter or call 860-528-4111. Goodwin College does not use the campus emergency notification system for weather closings.

When classes are canceled, individual faculty members may opt to conduct class online or hold a scheduled make-up session. Students are responsible for checking Blackboard and their Goodwin email regularly, particularly on days when classes are canceled, to learn of any alternate arrangements. If a canceled class is rescheduled, a student who is unable to attend will not be penalized for non-attendance but is still responsible for the work missed.
