Inclement Weather Plan

In the case of inclement weather, if weather conditions appear life threatening (lightning, tornado warnings, etc.), the university’s inclement weather plan will be put in place. This will be posted on the JMU website www.jmu.edu and announced on the radio at AM 1610. JMU’s public safety department makes this decision. All ceremonies will otherwise be held in rain or shine.

The University Ceremony that is to be held on Friday, May 8, 2015 will be canceled if the inclement weather plan in enacted. A decision will be made by 12:30 pm on Friday, May 8, 2015. There will be no make-up ceremony.

If inclement weather is called for Saturday; the decision will be made by 7 am on Saturday, May 9. The individual college ceremonies will be moved to indoor venues and times will change. The Commencement Home Page will have updated information should this issue occur.
