University Closure / Late Start Policy

CHWS follows the university’s lead on late openings and/or closures.  Please be aware that communication from our office may be limited during these situations (and likely suspended if the university is closed).  Availability of office staff, counselors, and clinicians are also likely to be adversely affected and schedules modified.

  • If classes are cancelled and the university is closed, your scheduled appointment will also be cancelled and our offices closed.  Office staff will not be available to contact clients to reschedule appointments.
  • If the university opens late or closes early, CHWS will be on the same schedule — i.e. if the campus has a 2-hour delayed start, our offices will not open until 10:00am.
  • Appointments will be considered cancelled during a university closure.  We will do our best to reschedule appointments affected by the closure.
  • Students will not be penalized for missing an appointment on a day that classes are cancelled or have a delayed start.

Please consider using Lute Telehealth services during a university closure.
