Inclement Weather Notifications

Here is how faculty, staff and students can find out if Averett will be closed or delayed (10:00 a.m. start) because of inclement weather:

AU Alert - Get a text message to your mobile device, and an email to your personal/work email address. Inclement weather notices will be sent by 6:30 a.m. However, please note that different carriers may take varying times to distribute AU Alert messages.

  • All employees should register for AU Alert, since this is our primary alert for all emergencies, not just inclement weather. Employees need to sign up again each year for AU Alert. To sign-up for AU Alert, or for more info, visit:
