Options for Making up Canceled Classes

Cancellations due to weather can cause a multitude of challenges for faculty and students. Below are the University approved options for making up your class time:

  1. The University academic calendar provides options for “emergency closing class make up days.” Faculty can use those dates to make up a missed class. Instructors who plan to use any of these times to make up a class should consult with their students as soon as possible to avoid scheduling conflicts. Instructors should also reserve a classroom through the Registrar’s Office. The Registrar’s Office can be reached at 486-3329 or at registrar@uconn.edu.
  2. Faculty may also choose to cover missed course material using various hybrid and online options. This option can be done asynchronously at the convenience of both instructors and students, which can prevent scheduling conflicts. For more information regarding this option, please contact the Institute for Teaching and Learning at 486-6540 or visit the ITL website.

It is critical that instructors work with students in their classes to either find a make up time that provides minimal conflict for students who have work, family commitments, or other obligations when scheduling a make-up class in person.
