Cancellation of Classes Policy

In the event of severe weather or other emergency, information regarding cancellation of classes at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia will be broadcast by number on KYW Newsradio (1060 AM) and by name on WTXF Fox TV-29. The broadcast number assigned to the University is 117 for cancellation of day classes and 2117 for cancellation of evening classes. You may access this information via the Internet at or by calling KYW Newsradio at 1-900-737-1060 for $.95. There will also be a taped message on the University’s Severe Weather Hotline, 215-596-USIP (8747), in the event that classes are canceled.

Possible changes: As the educational process from admission through graduation requires continuing review and appropriate approval by the university, the divisions of this Handbook are to be considered directive in character. The University, therefore, reserves the right to change its rules, regulations, requirements for admission or graduation, or course offerings at any time.
