For these external tests, we do not have contact information for candidates to do notifications so we have to rely on the testing companies for that service. We will further review our inclement weather procedures to make sure testing issues run smoothly.” – One Stop Shop

      If reaching out to your professor personally is unsuccessful, A&M-Commerce faculty members, staff members and students should exercise their own best judgment regarding the safety of their own travel based on their local conditions.

    I have class at 8 and 9, so does the delay mean they are cancelled?

    • Andi Miller

    I was signed up to take the generalist EC-6 test. I called the texes testing agency at 1-800-205-2626. I was told once they confirm from commerce that the school was closed then we will get an email or call to reschedule the test. Hope this info helps.

      Thanks, Nicole! While each person’s test is unique in subject and time, that is the universal step to take. We were discouraged to find out that our notification to the testing company last night didn’t spur the action of notifying our visiting testers this morning. We are looking into how we can speed up the chain of communication for future instances. Thanks for chiming in about your experience!

    UCD is already closed for today due to weather last week the A&M campus waited so late to close that I had to drive home in ice and nearly slide off he road twice.

    Why are these decisions made after the bad weather has already begun? I really don’t want to potentially drive off the road again. Can these warnings be given sooner? Commuters like me sometimes have to take lesser traveled roads to get ge and it isn’t always as safe as the major highways leading back to Dallas
