Weather Closing Information

On Wednesday, February 13 both New Jersey campuses as well as the Vancouver Campus are open. All classes and activities will proceed as scheduled.

On Tuesday, February 12 both New Jersey campuses were closed due to the weather. All on-campus day and evening classes and activities were canceled. Fully online classes proceeded as scheduled.

Classes at the Vancouver Campus were also cancelled for Tuesday, February 12, due to the weather, and will be rescheduled.

Especially during winter storms, safety may require closing of FDU campuses for a day or portion of a day. Every effort will be made to have morning closing information available before 6 AM. The resources on this page will also be activated for other situations where one or both New Jersey campuses may have altered schedules: local power outages, emergencies, or even a visit from a dignitary or celebrity.
