Occasionally, weather conditions or other situations arise in which the decision whether to hold tutoring sessions is questionable. Students should be advised of the following policies in effect: If the University cancels classes, all tutoring programs will also be canceled during that time frame. If the University does not cancel classes but operates under the Adverse Weather Policy, tutoring sessions are assumed to run according to the normal schedule. However, individual tutors may opt to cancel their sessions if they feel conditions will pose a risk to their safety or the safety of the students. If you are uncertain whether the tutoring center is open due to adverse weather, you may call the Tutoring Center at (936) 261-1561 or email
