You can visit our website at any time to check if the college has been closed for any reason, weather or otherwise. We now also post delay/closing updates on Facebook and Twitter. Also, you can call our information line at 914-606-6900. No mention of any delay or closure means that all classes will meet as scheduled. If the weather gets worse as the day progresses the decision to cancel evening classes will be made at approximately 3:00 pm.
You also have the option of tuning into certain radio or TV stations for information on college weather closings. Information about college closings will be given on Cablevision’s News Channel 12, WCBS (880 AM) and WHUD (100.7 FM). However, these television and radio updates, which are at the discretion of the media outlets, are merely secondary means of communicating closings. The media outlets don’t always run the information in a timely fashion, so please check the college website first for the most up to date, accurate information.
For winter weather delay or closing information, refer to the following: Valhalla and Peekskill, Ossining, White Plains, Yonkers (Cross County), Mount Vernon extensions, refer to website.
School-based extension locations (Roosevelt High, Port Chester Middle School, The Ursuline School, Lakeland High, Mahopac High), call 914-606-6421.
On a case by case basis, the college will host two “staging areas” for students and staff who are waiting out a storm or awaiting rides. In addition to the Student Center Lounge and/or Cafeteria, which normally serve as a holding area for students in these instances, we will occasionally also open up the Gateway Center atrium.
Regarding delays, if the college has a delayed opening, you may still have class. It depends on the timing of your class. For instance, if the college has a delayed opening at 11:00 a.m., and your class normally runs from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., your class will not meet. However, for instance, if you have a class that normally runs from 10:00 until 11:30 a.m., your class would meet for a half hour from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m.
