Winter Weather Guidelines

If the weather is bad...

follow the guidelines below.

1. Don't risk it

If the weather conditions will make it treacherous for you travel to Williamsport for testing or advising sessions, do not put yourself in danger; there are alternatives. You may contact Academic Services and First Year Programs to reschedule testing or to make other arrangements for your advising session.

To request a new placement test date, see Changing Your Test Date.

2. Check for weather related delays or closings

If inclement weather makes it necessary to either close or delay opening the College, announcements will be made on Penn College's website. See the College's Guidelines for Closings and Delayed Starts for general procedures and a list of radio and television stations that also carry weather related announcements.

Important Note:

  • Rather than call the College, it is best to follow the procedures listed above to obtain delay and closing information.
    If the College is closed or on a delay, there will be no one available to take your call.

3. Be aware of alternate start times and procedures for placement testing and advising sessions

See the procedures listed below. Additionally, please be sure to check your e-mail. We will communicate closing and delay information and instructions by e-mail, as we are able.
