Procedures for weather-related cancellations or delays

EVERETT, Wash. – November 27, 2019 – Winter weather is coming. Forecasting often suggests the potential for snow or ice in this season within days or just hours.

We tend to close campus or operate on a delayed schedule if it is unsafe for students, faculty and staff members to travel to or from campus. We understand that not everyone, especially in Puget Sound, lives on a flat street, has an all-terrain vehicle or is in close walking distance to a bus.

WSU Everett – and within it the Everett University Center and partners including Western Washington University, Eastern Washington University and University of Washington Bothell – is on the Everett Community College campus. As a result, if EvCC closes, WSU Everett is closed as well.

To receive the most immediate updates on closures or late starts, go to Rave Emergency Alerts to sign up for email and text alerts.

You may also visit Flash Alert Newswire to sign up for email and text alerts, and download the free FlashAlert Messenger app for iPhone or Android devices. This site also posts school emergency information as soon as decisions have been made.

In addition to Rave and FlashAlert, emergency information is posted on the campus website at, on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.

Radio and TV stations will begin announcing schedule changes at 5:30 a.m. Changes are typically announced alphabetically by school district and campus. No announcement typically means no schedule change is planned.

If WSU Everett closes on Friday, then the building is automatically closed on Saturday.

Please continue to listen to weather-related announcements regarding safety through the coming months. Be prepared for changes to our normal schedules and travel safely.

Please communicate in advance with your professors and any staff you might need assistance from so you stay safe and maintain your academic responsibilities.
