Emory & Henry College has campus locations in Emory, Bristol, and Marion, Virginia. Due to the difference in locations, it is possible that classes may be delayed or cancelled on one campus and not the other. Because the Emory campus is primarily a residential college with a majority of its undergraduate students living on campus, it is the intention of the College to remain open during inclement weather conditions. Under rare circumstances, such as severe inclement weather, a natural disaster, or other emergency, the College may delay the opening of college activities or suspend operations early. When information is sent to local media, the information will clarify Main Campus, located in Emory, and School of Health Sciences Marion Campus for those attending DPT classes in that location. In the event of a delayed opening of the Marion campus, classes will be delayed but will meet for the normal length of time.

The decisions to cancel or delay classes and/or cancel or delay the opening of offices because of inclement weather will be made by 6:30 a.m. on the day of the college schedule change. When inclement weather or other circumstances lead to a delayed opening and/ or cancellation of classes and office hours at Emory & Henry College, information will be communicated through a variety of sources in the order provided below:
When the College cancels classes and office hours for the day, academic programming and business operations are not held on that day. When the opening of the College is on a two-hour delay due to inclement weather, the condensed class schedule applies, with the exception of the Marion Campus and the Equestrian Center. On days when a two-hour delay is issued, Equestrian Center classes prior to 1:30 p.m. will be canceled due to the travel distance.
In the event of inclement weather resulting in a delayed opening of the College, college offices will open at the time designated in the delayed opening message, and faculty and staff should report at that time. An instructor who feels that it is best to cancel his or her class because of inclement weather will notify the Vice President for Academic Affairs (or designee) so that appropriate action may be taken. When a class is canceled, the Registrar (or designee) will post an official notice.
