Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather, the Global Campus at Bentonville will make decisions about conference operations in a manner that best addresses the safety and convenience of clients and attendees. Because the location of the Bentonville facility is not in close proximity with the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, the Bentonville campus will follow the Northwest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) Inclement Weather Policy. If NWACC is closed due to inclement weather, the Global Campus Bentonville facility will be closed and will notify clients. Clients are responsible for notifying participants. If the University remains open but conditions warrant, the Bentonville facility may delay opening, close early or close operations entirely.
