Emergency Closings and Other Changes in Class Schedules

Occasionally, the University is confronted by the need to close because of inclement weather or other reasons beyond the University’s control. Such closings are normally announced through the major radio stations in New York City and Westchester County and often appear on their Web sites. In addition, students can also check the Pace University home page, and/or call the Pace Events Phone (PEP) for school closing information.

  • Pleasantville/Briarcliff/White Plains, (914) 773-3398

Closings are also posted on the University's website at www.pace.edu and are sent via text message and email for those who sign up for Emergency Notifications at alert.pace.edu.

Although classes are planned to commence and conclude on the dates indicated in the academic calendar, unforeseen circumstances may necessitate adjustment to class schedules and extension of time for completion of class assignments. Examples of such circumstances may include faculty illness, malfunction of University equipment (including computers), unavailability of particular University facilities occasioned by damage to the premises, repairs or other causes, and school closings because of inclement weather. The University shall not be responsible for the refund of any tuition or fees in the event of any such occurrence or for failure of a class to conclude on the date originally scheduled. Nor shall the University be liable for any consequential damages as a result of such a change in schedule.
