Weather Emergencies

Stay Informed

When severe weather strikes Penn States Abington’s campus, individuals can stay informed of delays and cancellations by our PSUAlert system, Facebook, Twitter, homepage, and 215-881-SNOW.

Two-Hour Delay Policy

Classes will start at 10am.

  • Classes ending before 10am are cancelled for the day.
  • Classes that start before 10am but end after 10am will start at 10am and end at the regular time.

Cancellation Timetable

We aim to make school opening decisions by 6am.

Classes and activities that begin before any announced delay time are cancelled.

Classes or activities beginning at or after the announced delay time will be held as originally scheduled.

For example, a two-hour morning delay until 10am would mean that all classes that begin before 10am are cancelled. Classes beginning at 10am or later will continue on their regular schedule.

See the University attendance policy.

Early Dismissals

Early dismissal decisions depend on the time and severity of the weather. Stay tuned for PSUAlert to get immediate updates.

Safe Space

Students, faculty and staff who are concerned about driving in hazardous weather conditions, can wait out the storm in the Athletics Building.
