Occasionally, inclement weather might require the campus to modify daily operations. Please note that closures or delays are rare for Beaver campus and are not tied to the local school districts’ announced delays or closures. The following is a summary of policies that are used in the event of operational modifications.
At the campus level, decisions altering campus status and/or operations are made only by the chancellor in consultation with the director of academic affairs and the director of finance and business. Campus status is usually determined by 6:30 a.m. for day classes and 4 p.m. for evening classes.
For information about campus status, all employees and students should:
- Sign up for PSUAlert to receive immediate text messages sent straight to your cell phone.
- Visit the Beaver campus home page.
- Refer to the television and radio stations in the sidebar.
Weather-related actions usually take one of the following forms:
- Campus Closed: Only employees designated as essential by their supervisor should report to work on campus. Essential employees who work when the campus is closed are eligible for equivalent time off as mutually agreed to by the employee and supervisor.
- Classes Cancelled: No classes will be held, but all campus employees are expected to report to work as usual. Class cancellations may vary, e.g. cancellations might be announced only for day classes or only for evening classes, or cancellations might include both day and evening classes. Resident instruction classes and Beaver campus Continuing Education classes adhere to the same closure recommendations.
- Delay of Class Start: The start of classes will be delayed until an announced time. The day's regular schedule will be followed once classes begin. For example, if the start of class is delayed until 10 a.m., then the 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. classes will not meet, and the regular schedule will begin at 10 a.m. All campus employees must report to work at the usual time.
If you have registered for PSUAlert, you will automatically receive a weather alert.
Cancellation of day classes does not automatically mean cancellation of evening classes and the opposite is also true.
