As Hurricane Irma approaches Florida, the storm will have impacts on both the students and faculty at FAU. Please, if you live in an unaffected area, remember the instructor for your course and fellow students could be in areas with no power or internet access. Your instructor will do his/her very best to communicate with you as soon as it is possible. During the storm, Canvas will remain available because it is on servers that are outside of Florida.

Tips during Hurricanes for Students

Below are tips to staying on target with your academics during this time.

  • Be proactive by keeping in contact with your professor. Use the communication methods provided by your instructor to inform him/her of your academic progress once you are safe and have internet connectivity.
  • Monitor your university email. In addition to information on university closures, your professor may be sending you updated information about course activities.
