Testing Center Weather Policy and Campus Closures

In the event of severe weather that could force SOWELA to close or cancel classes, such information will be broadcast on many local radio and television stations. Students may also find campus closing information via SmartNotice located on the homepage.

During severe weather conditions, students who reside in areas that fall under high risk/flood areas should not attempt to drive to SOWELA even if the campus remains open. If an examination is scheduled for a day that the campus is closed, please contact the Testing Center via phone or email for instructions on how to reschedule your testing appointment.

The Testing Center adheres to the College’s academic-year calendar closings. Please visit the Academic Calendar for campus closings.
