Weather-Related Closing and Delay Information
There are situations, including inclement winter weather, that will necessitate either a delay or closing of Penn State Altoona. Because many of our students live on campus, we typically remain open unless the campus cannot be cleared or the main roads are impassible.
Penn State Altoona will utilize the compressed class schedule below whenever a decision has been made to modify our regular schedule. In the case of a delayed opening for the campus, we now will utilize a two-hour delay schedule, wherein students and faculty will follow a shortened version of their normal daily schedule.
For classes that are longer than the listed standard 50 and 75 minute classes, students should follow the compressed schedule for the class start time closest to their actual class start time. The end time will be determined by their individual faculty yet be no later than 10 minutes before the start time of the class scheduled after their normal class time.
LABS: It is within the discretion of the faculty member to determine if the lab will be held pursuant to the two-hour delay schedule or if it will be cancelled; students should check with their individual faculty member, the course syllabus, or on the class cancellation webpage for this information.
The latest information on closings or schedule changes, along with the two-hour delay schedule, is available on Penn State Altoona's website at www.altoona.psu.edu/cancel.
Closing and delay information will also be available on the following radio and television stations:
