The academic schedule is normally not affected by the late opening or early closing of administrative offices.  In the rare instances when the State Police and the Department of Transportation advise drivers to stay off the roads due to severe weather conditions, VMI's closing announcement  will include information about changes in the academic schedule.

Classified employees in designated positions are expected to report to work at the beginning of their regular work shifts unless otherwise advised by their supervisors.
