Students should register their cell or landline phone number for emergency notification at https://asap.winthrop.edu/cellphone/. Your registered number will be used by the university for critical notifications in the event of emergencies, critical weather, or unplanned university closings.
It is the practice of Winthrop University to carry out its primary responsibility of providing instruction for students during regularly scheduled hours, except in cases when extreme weather conditions make roads unsafe for travel. While Winthrop feels a responsibility to meet scheduled classes and maintain office support for those classes whenever possible, the University places the highest priority on the safety of its students, faculty and staff.
If scheduled classes and activities of the University have been changed due to unsafe road and traveling conditions, the University notifies local media outlets in areas where Winthrop students and employees live. Students should check their university e-mail or the university Web site, www.winthrop.edu for the most up-to-date information related to class and office schedules. Should you not have access to e-mail, the Web, or other information, call the campus alert line, 803/323-2222.
