Tropical Storm Nicole Update: Campus Opening Friday

At this time, we continue to be on track for a return to full campus operations on Friday, November 11 at 9:00 a.m. At that time, in-person classes will resume as scheduled and on-campus faculty and staff may return to the campus as necessary. If you had a class or lab canceled due to the storm, your instructor will be in touch regarding potential reschedules.

We realize that some may be struggling with a loss of power or damage to property due to Tropical Storm Nicole. If you are a student who is unable to attend classes or complete assignments, whether here in Florida or in other storm-affected areas, please stay safe and remain in close touch with your instructors - they will work with you to extend deadlines and provide accommodations as needed. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Student Support at [email protected], or by calling 855-374-3572.

Remote staff and faculty who are still without power and are scheduled to work are also invited to come to campus as necessary - please contact your manager to work out the best accommodations for your situation.

We will communicate any future details as necessary through the following channels:

Stay tuned to local media outlets and the Orange County website for more details regarding Tropical Storm Nicole.

Tropical Storm Nicole Update: Move to Remote Operations

As Central Florida prepares for the effects of Tropical Storm Nicole, we wanted to provide the update below:

Full Sail’s campus will remain open for operations, and all in person classes will remain as scheduled through 9:00am Wednesday, November 9. However, due to the current projected path of Tropical Storm Nicole and to ensure the safety of Full Sail University’s students, staff, and faculty, Full Sail will be transitioning to remote classes and work operations starting at 9:00am, Wednesday, November 9 through 9:00am, Friday November 11. The campus will be closed for operations at that time, with most classes and labs still taking place remotely via Zoom meetings, with potential rescheduling for select campus labs. Staff and faculty will be asked to remain home and work remotely for that period of time. If for any reason you are unable to work remotely during the campus closure, please contact your direct supervisor to work out accommodations.

If for any reason we are unable to conduct remote or online classes and labs, we will stay in close communication with the Full Sail community in an effort to best serve our students and faculty, especially those who may live in areas affected by Tropical Storm Nicole. Rest assured that our instructors and advisors will work with both campus and online students to extend deadlines and make pragmatic accommodations as needed.

Our plan is to reopen the campus for operations at 9:00am, on Friday, November 11, pending the after effects of the storm. We will communicate any further details regarding campus closures through the following channels:

Since Full Sail’s campus will be closed during this time, we ask all staff and faculty to remain off campus, except for key members of certain departments, who will be contacted by their supervisors as necessary.

To prepare for this campus closure:

Please remember to remove your vehicles, motorcycles, and bikes from the campus.

Together, our priorities are the safety and well-being of one another and the preservation and security of Full Sail. We will make our best effort to keep you informed of any relevant updates through all the channels mentioned above.

Stay tuned to local media outlets and the Orange County website for more details regarding Tropical Storm Nicole.

November 7, 2022

As of Monday, November 7, we are closely monitoring Subtropical Storm Nicole and any potential impacts to Central Florida.

While Central Florida and Full Sail have weathered dozens of tropical storms and hurricanes in the past, your safety is our top priority. Wind and rain impacts appear possible in Florida this week, and our University administration and operations teams will remain vigilant in communicating any emergency closures or other impacts to current campus operations.
