Penn State announced Wednesday evening that all final exams, activities, and work at University Park are canceled from 4 a.m. on Thursday, December 15, through 5 a.m. on Friday, December 16, due to forecasted winter weather.

All final exams scheduled for Thursday will be held in the same location at new times on Friday and Saturday. The updated times are as follows:

  • Exams scheduled for 8 a.m. Thursday are now scheduled for 12:20 p.m. to 2:10 p.m. Friday
  • Exams scheduled for 10:10 a.m. Thursday are now scheduled for 2:30 p.m. to 4:20 p.m. Friday
  • Exams scheduled for 12:20 p.m. Thursday are now scheduled for 4:40 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday

All exams scheduled for Friday will originally go on as planned. Instructors are also given the option to move exams to an asynchronous format. Students who live on campus with rescheduled exams will have their move-out dates extended.

The university is asking faculty to be “flexible” with student conflicts, which could include planned departures and graduation. Fall commencement ceremonies are scheduled for 9 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The HUB will remain open Thursday but all other scheduled in-person activities are canceled. Employees that perform essential services and those who work at the Applied Research Laboratory are expected to report to work. All others should remain home until normal campus activity resumes.

According to Accuweather, State College is projected to receive three-to-six inches of snow between 5 a.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. Friday.
