Cancellation of Classes

If classes are canceled because of weather, the Office of the Vice President of Administration will transmit the message to the University weather emergency numbers: 800-280-SNOW and 212-636-7777. The University’s radio station, WFUV (90.7 FM), will make announcements every 15 minutes. Separate announcements will be made for the Westchester campus. Text message notifications will also be sent.

Cancellation of classes does not necessarily mean the University is closed. Even though classes may be canceled, all other academic and administrative services and functions in the University are expected to be open according to their regular schedules.

If weather conditions cause the University to close before the start of the work day, that will be communicated via the University’s switchboards and radio station WFUV (90.7 FM).

Cancellation of classes for on campus program courses may not result in cancellation of classes for online degree programs. Students enrolled in online degree programs should consult with professors to determine if classes are canceled, whether due to inclement weather or holiday schedules.
