University Testing Inclement Weather Policy

Please check the Arkansas Tech University (ATU) website,, for campus wide information. If the campus is closed, Testing Services is also closed.

If the campus is open but the weather is deteriorating, we will attempt to administer all scheduled tests. Again, please remember that your personal safety, as well as the safety of ATU staff members, is much more important than a test administration. We reserve the right to cancel scheduled tests if road conditions are too dangerous for staff members to safely report to the office or may have to risk their safety in order to return to their homes after administering a test. Cancellation information will be posted on the ATU website at

If you are registered to sit for a national standardized exam (for example, the ACT or Praxis), you should call the national testing company for updates, or check their website, regarding whether or not your test center is open. Contact information for the testing company should be on your admission ticket.

If a national standardized exam is cancelled due to inclement weather, the testing company makes the decision as to whether or not a makeup date will be offered. Testing companies generally publish rescheduled test dates on their websites. Please check directly with the testing company for specific information.

Individuals are urged to place their personal safety first. Please do not endanger yourself or others by driving in unsafe conditions, even if the campus is open.
