Individual Class Cancellations

Cancellations of individual class meetings will be posted on the College’s web portal AMOS. To view all cancellations for a specific day, a student should click on the ‘Class Cancellations’ link found in the Quick Links section on the left-hand side of AMOS or go directly to the Class Cancellations page. Students can see their personalized lists by going to the same location, after logging in to AMOS. Students in the class should also receive an e-mail at their Moravian College e-mail account when an individual class is listed as cancelled on AMOS.

Inclement Weather Policy

Commuting students who are absent or late for class are not to be penalized when the College has issued a 2-hour delay or when the U.S. Weather Bureau has issued any of the following notices:

  • Traveler's advisory
  • Heavy snow warning
  • Winter storm warning

In hazardous weather conditions, the College may be closed and classes cancelled, or the College may opt to run on a two-hour delayed schedule (see below).

To communicate delays or closures, Moravian College sends text and e-mail notifications via e2Campus (see below), sends a College e-mail message, posts on AMOS, posts on the College webpage, and provides an announcement on the College Weather Hotline at 610 625-7995. Public announcements are also made via WFMZ (website and television).

e2Campus is the College emergency notification system. All students are strongly encouraged to opt in to this free service to receive text and e-mail messages for weather and other campus emergencies.

College-wide cancellations after the start of the class day will be announced on the public-address system of the HUB, the campus e-mail system, e2Campus, WFMZ, and AMOS and the College’s website.

It is important to note that students will not be e-mailed at their Moravian e-mail account if the College is closed for the entire day or if the start of the day is delayed due to inclement weather unless they have opted to be notified via e2Campus.

Two-Hour Delay

If the decision has been made to open with a two-hour delay, the day does not begin with third-period classes; it begins with first-period classes on a shortened schedule. When following the delayed schedule, there will be no "a" or "b" periods. Morning and afternoon science labs and studio art classes have their own schedule. Music lessons and practica are cancelled for the day when the delayed schedule is in effect. The class schedule in these circumstances is as follows:
