If the decision is made to delay opening, there will be either a one hour delay or a two-hour delay.

  • If there is a one hour delay, classes will begin and offices will open at 10 a.m.
  • If there is a two hour delay, classes will begin and offices will open at 11 a.m.
Notification will be made as quickly as possible to the local radio and television stations, Harcum’s phone, website, student-staff email, and via e2Campus, the College emergency notification system.

Announcements on local radio and television will note the change (see list below).
