When possible, decisions regarding class cancellations due to winter weather or other dangerous weather situations will be made by 6 am for daytime classes and 3 pm for evening classes. There are situations where cancellations may need to be made at a later time due to changing weather situations.

When classes are cancelled, students and employees will be notified in the following ways:

  • A Bethel Alert will be distributed via Bethel email; the office phones of Bethel employees; and to other phone numbers on which students and employees have opted in to receive such alerts.
  • On the Personal Announcements channel at the my.bethel home page.
