Inclement weather closing and delay information

It's that time of year again when it inclement weather strikes and may cause the delay or cancellation of classes at Penn State Altoona. Because many students live on campus, the campus typically remains open unless it cannot be cleared or the main roads are impassible.

Penn State Altoona will utilize a compressed schedule whenever a decision has been made to alter the regular schedule. In the case of a delayed opening for the campus, a two-hour delay schedule will be utilized, wherein students and faculty will follow a shortened version of their normal daily schedule.

For example, in the case of a two-hour delay, a class regularly scheduled for 8 will begin at 10 a.m. With the two-hour delay schedule, every 50 minute class is compressed to 35 minutes, every 75 minute class is compressed to 50 minutes, every 120 minute class is compressed to 70 minutes, and every 150 minute class is compressed to 115 minutes.

The latest information on closings or schedule changes, along with the two-hour delay schedule, is available at online.
