Alvernia made it a practice to hold virtual days, with classes held online and work completed remotely during inclement weather whenever possible. This page features information regarding the university's inclement weather policy, decision making and notification systems.
The university uses Omnilert text and email alerts, social media and the website to notify students and employees when there is a delay or change in campus operations. The expectation should always be that the campuses are operating as normal, unless otherwise indicated. For severe weather that compromises services or safety while classes are in session, an announcement will be made as soon as possible; if overnight, an announcement will be made around 6 a.m. regarding the services to be provided for that day. (IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are signed up for Omnilert email alerts, please check your junk email to make sure the messages are not getting caught in spam filters.)
Again, unless notified differently, the university will always be operating on a normal schedule. Note: Food services for residential students remain open.
