Please see this Penn State News article for the latest clarifications regarding weather-related closings.
Please note: The campus will continue to use the Compressed Schedule in the case of a delayed start.
If weather conditions are very serious, a media announcements will be made that classes for the day (including evening classes) and all scheduled events will be canceled. All administrative offices will be closed as well.
If only one day of classes is missed during a semester due to a campus closing, instructors are asked to make up missed classes at their discretion, making their own arrangements with their students. If classes or rooms need to be scheduled for makeup purposes, please notify the registrar.
If the campus cancels more than one day during the semester, the campus administration will determine how to make up those missed classes.
Communication of Closings
The campus will use a number of methods to announce a campus closing, delay, or early dismissal. These include: PSUAlert text messages, emails, the campus website, and TV announcements.
The campus is closed only in severe weather. If it becomes necessary to change school operating schedules due to weather or other conditions, we will utilize local media to notify staff, faculty and students. Please bear in mind that it may not always be possible to get word out as rapidly as we might like, but the announcement to cancel classes or to delay the start of classes will be made approximately at 5:00 am.
