Full Sail University in Winter Park canceled Tuesday classes as Hurricane Dorian approaches Florida.

The announcement comes a full day after the University of Central Florida, Valencia College, and Rollins College announced their campus closures.
"All campus classes and labs will be canceled on Tuesday, September 3 and all students are asked to remain off campus beginning Sunday, September 1 to stay home and safe until we formally announce the re-opening of campus," read a statement from university officials.

The university on Twitter encouraged students, faculty and staff to have a "pre-packed weather emergency kit."

A number of Central Florida K-12 school districts have also canceled Tuesday classes, including Orange County.
