Spring on the York College campus

Inclement Weather Schedule

Answers to your questions about delays, closings, and schedule

When icy conditions, snow, or other bad weather scenarios are present, the College has a team that convenes to decide on possible changes to the schedule to ensure student and staff safety. Please note: Although every effort is made to make these decisions as quickly as possible, we must also wait until we have the best information available — making a call about a delay the day before a snow storm arrives is often not feasible. 

If you feel you cannot make it safely to campus, please contact your professors or your work/club advisors. We want you to be safe, as it is impossible to know the conditions of every road. Thank you for your patience. We do make every effort to answer your questions on Twitter and elsewhere. If you have not seen any communications from the College about a delay or closure, we have not adjusted the schedule as of that point

Schedules, Shuttles, and More

  • Getting Updates

    How to get updates about weather-related schedule changes

    Delays/Cancellations will be announced on:

  • Shuttle Service

    Shuttle service during delayed schedule

    Shuttles will always begin one hour before classes begin when there is a delay. For example, the shuttle service starts at 9:00 a.m. when classes start at 10 a.m. on a two-hour delay.

  • Individual Programs/Clubs

    How does a delay or closure affect your program or activity?

    Please contact officials with individual programs/activities (such as Nursing or Student Teaching) if you are unsure how the delay impacts their schedule. It's advised you do this in advance of any change to the schedule, i.e. at the beginning of the semester and not the morning of a delay, in order to have information you need to calculate your commute time. The College will not necessarily know how an individual program is affected, particularly off-campus.
