Florida Tech announced that the classes canceled on Sept. 30 during Hurricane Ian will be made up Saturday, Dec 3, 2022 in person in order to meet the minimum contact hour requirements.

At the end of September, Hurricane Ian targeted various parts of Florida, specifically Fort Myers, but also interfered with the daily lives of individuals on the east coast of the state. In Melbourne, restaurants and stores shut down, along with all schools in Brevard County, according to Brevard Schools website. Noting this, Florida Tech decided to make classes meet remotely on Wednesday, Sept. 28, and cancel the rest of the week's courses, according to Florida Tech’s advisory email.

With the cancellation of classes, Florida Tech is at risk of not meeting the minimum contact hour requirements. Therefore, it was announced Thursday morning that there will be a make-up day for all classes that were canceled on Sept. 30th due to the impact of Hurricane Ian. These classes will be made up on Saturday, Dec. 3.

All students should plan to attend these lectures and follow the attendance policies in the respected course syllabi. For any questions or concerns regarding this rescheduling, please contact your professors about meeting times.
