If finals are canceled tomorrow, Registrar Freida Eggleton said students should expect to make them up Friday afternoon. An ultimate decision to cancel finals will be made by 5 a.m. tomorrow.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for Warren County at 3:25 p.m. CT Wednesday that will last through noon CT Thursday. The NWS is predicting a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow across south-central Kentucky, with the mix turning to rain on Thursday morning.

Monday morning’s exams scheduled before noon were moved to the same time on Wednesday.

Final grades must be posted by faculty on Monday, but in the case of a delay, Eggleton said a decision may be made to push this date back.

WKU campuses in Elizabethtown, Radcliff and Ft. Knox will be closed on Thursday due to the possibility of inclement weather, according to an e-mail sent Wednesday by Bob Skipper, director of media relations.
