Campus Closures

Campus Closures

If it becomes necessary to change campus operating schedules due to weather or other conditions, we will utilize the PSUAlert system and local media to notify staff, faculty, and students. For severe weather overnight, the announcement to cancel or delay the start of classes will be made at approximately 6:00 a.m.
