Snow and Ice Policy/Campus Closure Procedures

In the event of significant snow or ice, it will be the responsibility of the president to decide whether the McMinnville campus, Portland campus, or both, will be open, delayed or closed. In the absence of the president, another senior officer will make the decision.

The decision about a closure or late opening will be made by 6:30 a.m.

If the decision is to close or open late, this information will be reported to local radio and television stations (including KXL AM, KEX AM, KOPB FM, KOIN TV, and KGW TV among others) for distribution.

If the media do not explicitly report that Linfield University campuses will be closed or will open late, then the campuses will open at the normal time. University closure decisions are not tied to local school districts, which have bussing and child safety concerns that differ from the university.

In addition, closing and opening message can be accessed on 503-883-CATS (2287) and will be sent out via CatAlert to the Linfield community.

Unless otherwise noted, OCE classes requiring physical attendance will conform to the McMinnville campus pattern.
