Inclement Weather Announcements

During conditions of a weather emergency the College will make every effort to continue administrative operations. However, certain conditions (hazardous roads, inability to keep parking lots clear) may force a cancellation of classes. Old Westbury will not post an announcement that the College is open.  No announcement means “business as usual.”
