Inclement Weather Policy

FAES Academic Programs courses are held in federal government facilities. Consequently, FAES follows the snow and dismissal procedures of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). When government offices are opened late or closed early or all day due to hazardous weather conditions, or when hazardous weather conditions are probable for the daytime workshops or evening academic courses, classes will not be held.

FAES will notify students and faculty in advance of any delayed start or cancellation due to inclement weather. If in doubt, students are welcome to send inquiries to or call 301-496-7976.
