Inclement Weather Policy

weatherDue to the residential nature of our campus community, Hiwassee College rarely alters its class schedule because of inclement weather. However, when poor weather conditions exist, the College will follow these procedures:

  • An announcement of any alteration/cancellation of the class schedule will be made on local television stations, WATE-6 and WBIR-10.
  • Decisions will be posted by 6:00 a.m. if possible and no later than 7:00 a.m. If Hiwassee College is open, but local schools are closed, the faculty will be understanding of conditions affecting commuter students. Please notify your instructors as soon as possible about your situation.
  • Notification will also appear on the College’s website.
