Advising Handbook

Academic Policies and Procedures ยป University Policy On Class Cancellations And Delays (DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER OR OTHER EMERGENCY)

Classes will be cancelled or delayed only under extreme circumstances. A decision will be made and announced as early as possible;

  • By 7 a.m. for day classes and offices
  • By 2 p.m. for evening classes

Announcements will be recorded on the 257-INFO line, posted on www.newpaltz.edu and provided to area radio stations.

A delay in the start of classes represents a cancellation of classes prior to the delayed start. For example, a delay to start classes at 10:30 means that classes beginning before 10:30 are cancelled and students should consult instructors about any make-up arrangements.

If inclement weather forces cancellations or delays during the final examination period, the affected exams will be rescheduled at the end of the period. Residence Life and Food Service will adjust their schedules to support students remaining on campus for the rescheduled exams.
