Prepare for early closures, delays as winter weather approaches

The arrival of winter weather will bring early closures and some delays to Augusta University’s campuses on Friday, Jan. 21 and Saturday, Jan. 22.

Winter weather is expected to arrive later this evening and end by 2 a.m. Saturday. The Augusta area is expected to receive up to 1 inch of snow and a light glaze of ice accumulations.

Please take caution when driving in winter weather. Leave early to allow extra time and drive slower.

We will continue to provide updates on our Jagwire alerts page.

Update your personal information

Since communication during events of this nature is important, please ensure your contact information is current in the student and employee systems (links on the Alert Page above). Also, monitor our social media and local media outlets for information.

Be prepared

Do you have a personal preparedness plan? Being prepared reduces stress and increases your chances of having a positive outcome during emergencies. A few moments of preparation can make a world of difference.
