Inclement Weather/Emergency Closure

Graduate School USA Closure Policy

Graduate School USA (GSUSA) follows the federal government’s Operating Status, as determined by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). With regard to closings due to inclement weather or other emergencies, if the federal government is closed, GSUSA will also be closed.

Should the federal government declare offices open and offer employees the option for unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework, classes will begin at their normally scheduled start time, which is 8:30 a.m. Eastern.

If the federal government declares a two-hour delayed opening, classes will begin two hours after their normally scheduled start time. Please check your confirmation letter for exact times.

When the federal government declares an early departure, GSUSA will dismiss classes earlier than normal, based on the circumstances.

Status updates will be available on the home page of our website. Classes missed due to closings may be made up at no cost on a later date. Should you need to reschedule your class, please contact our Customer Relations Center on the next scheduled day of operation at (888) 744-4723 or customerrelations@graduateschool.edu
