Compressed Class Schedule

When the campus is officially closed, radio and TV stations will simply report that the campus is closed. This means that neither day nor evening classes will meet, and offices will not be staffed.

When classes are delayed in opening, the radio and TV message will be: “The Wilkes-Barre Campus is on a compressed schedule.”  When this occurs, staff should report at 10:00 a.m., and all classes begin at 10:00 a.m. and meet as indicated on the schedule below:

Individual class cancellations will be posted on the campus Message Board, viewable on the campus blue television screens or on the campus website. As classes are cancelled, the Message Board will be updated.

When a compressed schedule is in effect:

  • Evening Classes are held at regular evening hours.
