The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Upstate region of South Carolina with snow, ice and sleet expected throughout the evening and into Thursday morning. Impacted areas are expected to be north of I-20. Students, faculty and staff driving to Columbia from those areas are encouraged to make travel decisions based on the conditions in your area. Those unable to travel should communicate with your supervisor or professors.

University officials will continue to monitor the weather and its potential effects on operations and remain in communication with Richland County Government regarding decisions on delays or closings. 

As a state agency, the University must follow the delay and closing determinations of Richland County Government. (Please note this is not Richland County school districts.)

If Richland County government is closed or delayed, we will send notifications using the Carolina Alert system: text messages, email, social media and sc.edu gateways. We will also notify local news outlets to include our delays and closings with their announcements.

All members of the Carolina family are encouraged to use caution when walking or driving to, in or around campus. Always obey all signs, caution tape, etc. Please take reasonable steps to ensure your safety and the safety of your family. General weather preparedness information can be found at Carolina Alert.

Reminder to about winter weather

Winter is here and while we do not expect any deviation from our normal campus operations in the immediate future, the return to campus this semester is a good time to remind the Carolina Family of the following regarding weather related delays and closings:

As a state agency, the University must follow the delay and closing determinations of Richland County Government. (Please note this is not Richland County school districts.)

Once the decision has been made by Richland County, we will send notifications using the Carolina Alert system: text messages, email, social media and sc.edu gateways. We will also notify local news outlets to include our delays and closings with their announcements. The Division of Human Resources has posted additional information about hazardous weather instructions for employees and supervisors.
