Campus Closing Policy

Missouri Western State University will close for extraordinary circumstances. If the university is to close due to weather/road conditions, the decision will be made as follows:

Daytime Closing – normally the decision will be made by 6:00a.m.

Evening Closing – normally the decision will be made by 4:00p.m.

Any closing of the university will be broadcast on the following stations:

  • KCMO Radio (71 AM* and 95 FM)
  • KKJO Radio (105.5 FM)
  • KFEQ Radio (68 AM)
  • KSJQ Radio (92.7 FM)
  • WDAF Television (Channel 4)
  • KQTV (Channel 10)

If closings are not reported on the aforementioned stations, it should be assumed the university is open. It should be noted the university Administration will take several factors into consideration when making the decision to close the university due to weather/road conditions. Therefore, it cannot be assumed the university will close when area schools are closed.

Closings will also be posted on the Missouri Western home page (

*KCMO Radio has changed its frequency to 71 AM. It was previously at 81 AM.
