Alvin B. Wood Support Services Center, First Floor
The Registrar's Office, located on the main floor of the Alvin B. Wood Support Services Center, maintains student academic records; assists student with class registration; determines eligibility for graduation; issues course grades; issues academic transcripts; and verifies enrollment.
Each winter season brings its share of stormy weather. Eastern does not cancel classes or close the school except in extreme snow conditions. Therefore, plan on classes being held throughout the winter season.
If weather conditions necessitate canceling classes, announcements will be carried on local TV and radio stations as early in the morning as possible. Announcements regarding evening classes will be made in the afternoon. Students may also call (860) 465-4444 for closing announcements. A Connecticut toll-free number, (800) 578-1449, may be used by students living outside the local calling area.
In addition to these standard notification features, Eastern also has an automated option available to students, faculty and staff called "Eastern Alert." Using this system, subscribers can receive early morning cancellation notices via voice mail, text message, e-mail, or landline phone call.

In the event of a delayed opening of the University, any class that would have at least 45 minutes of meeting time remaining after the announced opening time will meet. Any class meeting that would have fewer than 45 minutes of meeting time after the announced opening time will not meet. For example, with a 10 AM opening, classes running from 9:30-10:45 would meet from 10-10:45.
In the event of an early closing of the University, any class that would have at least 45 minutes of meeting time prior to the announced closing time will meet. Any class meeting that would have fewer than 45 minutes of meeting time before the announced closing time will not meet. For example, with a 3 PM closing, classes running from 2:00-3:15 would meet from 2:00-3:00.
