Inclement Weather Policy

Winter Weather Plan 

Delayed Opening: 9am, 10am or 11am

If JMU should have a delayed opening (till 9am, 10am or 11am) then we are still planning to have the Career & Internship Fair. If the University opens at 10am or 11am please be patient with us as all of our student attendees will be arriving at roughly the same time as all of you. It may be a bit chaotic in the first 30 minutes or so as we check in both employers and students, so please bear with us! Updated information on the status of JMU closing for winter weather can be found on the JMU homepage: www.jmu.edu .  

Delayed Opening: 12pm (noon) OR JMU Cancellation

If JMU should have a delayed opening at 12 noon (or should JMU decide to close altogether), we will have no choice but to cancel the fair (you will receive an email from me confirming this). If this should happen, please mark your calendars for our inclement weather make-up date, FEBRUARY 21, 2018. You will receive additional information regarding the logistics for attending this make-up event. Updated information on the status of JMU closing for winter weather can be found on the JMU homepage: www.jmu.edu .
