LCUH Final Exam Schedule

Message from the Provost regarding Interruptions to Class Schedules/Attendance during Inclement Weather:

University Community,

As we approach finals week, we are keeping a close watch on the forecast, especially on the evolving predictions for wintry weather on Sunday.  In preparation for the possibility of weather that disrupts the normal finals schedule, this email is a reminder of the procedures for the Inclement Weather Schedule for Final Examination.

In the event of inclement weather during finals week, here are some things to keep in mind.

Decisions Regarding Canceling or Delaying Classes

Interruptions to class schedules are always challenging, particularly during final examination week.  The President’s team takes many factors into consideration, makes the decision as early as possible, and announces it broadly. 

Announcing a Cancellation or Delay

In addition to traditional venues, the University also announces decisions using the RAVE system.  If you have not signed onto RAVE, please consider doing so by visiting EKU Direct.

As stated in Regulation 4.8.2, Cancellation or Delay of Classes (

Any EKU final examination delay announcements will be posted on EKU’s home page (, broadcast on WEKU-FM and Lexington television stations WLEX-TV, WKYT-TV, AND WTVQ-TV, and given to other regional media outlets.  Generally, the information will be available to listeners/viewers by 6:00 a.m.  Students are advised to monitor the EKU web page during the day in the event of worsening weather conditions.

In the event that final examinations are delayed, please see the following schedule for new examination times.

Questions Regarding Class Attendance

Given our large service area, variations in road conditions, our academic schedule, and students' expectations, it's impossible to know and accommodate everyone's situation.  Students take to social media with questions and make inquiries of our faculty and staff.  We remind those inquiring that the decision to travel to campus ultimately rests with each individual with safety as a priority consideration.  Many faculty have also been keeping an eye on weather forecasts and have been considering or have made alternative plans if needed.  Students should communicate directly with their instructor(s) as early as possible regarding concerns and to see if accommodations can be made regarding final exams.  That is, indeed, the most common concern of anxious students.

University Closure

In the event that the University closes, the best – and most widely adopted – alternative will be to re-schedule final exams for Friday and assess ways to accommodate those students who are scheduled to participate in Commencement activities.

Best of luck on finals!  Stay safe and warm!
