  • Student Transportation Policy

    For required academic events away from Athens campus, transportation will be provided by the Medical Partnership.  When the Medical Partnership provides transportation, all students are required to utilize that transportation.

    If a student has a legitimate reason to use alternate means of transportation to attend a required, academic off-campus event, he or she may submit a request for an exception to this policy to the Associate Dean for Student and Multicultural Affairs, at least 5 days prior to the event.  In case of an emergency, contact the Associate Dean of Student and Multicultural Affairs directly.

    The Office of Student and Multicultural Affairs Office is located in rooms 110 and 112 in Winnie Davis Hall.

  • Inclement Weather Policy

    The AU/UGA Medical Partnership follows the UGA Inclement Weather Operations Policy:

    UGA Inclement Weather Operations Policy

    PLEASE NOTE:  The AU/UGA Medical Partnership follows the UGA Inclement Weather Operations Policy.

    During periods of inclement weather, UGA follows a set procedure for announcing operational changes.

    By policy, the university makes one of three announcements: UGA is open and operating on a regular schedule; UGA is closed; or UGA will delay opening until a specific time.

    An all-campus e-mail through ArchNews is the primary means to distribute such announcements. The announcement also is posted to the UGA home page.

    Announcements will also be posted to Twitter (@universityofga and @UGAEVENTS) and Facebook ( and 

    Up-to-date information is provided to Athens radio stations as follows:

    • on the AM dial: 960 and 1340; 
    • and on the FM dial: 88.9, 90.5, 91.7, 97.9, 100.1, 102.1, 103.7 and 106.1.

    Information is posted on University Cable Channel 15, which also is carried on channel 15 of the cable system serving Clarke and Oconee counties. Athens radio stations are used primarily because they give priority to UGA announcements where Atlanta stations cannot. Atlanta TV and radio stations that have requested to receive UGA weather announcements also are notified, but should not be considered a primary source for closing announcements.

    If inclement weather develops overnight, attempts are made to post announcements and notify media by 6:30 a.m., but if the inclement weather develops after 6:30 a.m. on a school/work day, the same notification procedures are used.

    When weather conditions are such that closings occur two or more days in succession, the procedure is followed each day, with an announcement being made each day by
 6:30 a.m. An evening announcement usually will not be made for the next day except in the most extreme weather circumstances.

    On days when UGA generally is scheduled to be closed (Saturdays, Sundays and holidays), the university does not usually make blanket closing announcements. Departments and units that have normal operations on weekends and holidays, or units planning to host or present special programs on those days, should make their own prior arrangements with employees and participants, notifying them how to proceed in case of inclement weather.

    When UGA is officially closed, it is closed for everyone: faculty, staff and students. Departments will designate in advance those expected to report to work during a weather emergency.

    Announcements for weather closings at UGA campuses in Buckhead, Gwinnett, Griffin and Tifton are handled by those campus administrators, separately from the main campus announcements.
