IPFW does not have weather delays. It is either open or closed. If you think IPFW may have declared an adverse-weather closing, listen to local radio or television announcements (including Comcast College Cable Access Channel 56), or call the campus weather emergency number 260-481-6050 or 260-481-5770, for a recorded message. Whenever possible, adverse-weather closings are announced by 6:30 a.m. for daytime classes and 3 p.m. for evening classes.
You can also sign up through your myIPFW account to receive campus alerts by phone call or text. Log on to your account and in the third channel (column to far right of the screen) is a box titled Alert Phone Number. Click on the edit button on the bottom left side of the box and enter your preferences.
If no announcement is made, you should assume the campus is open. However, if you are concerned about the weather, it is ultimately your responsibility to consider the potential risks of traveling under possibly hazardous conditions. Please contact your instructor either through e-mail or voice mail and let him or her know your situation.

"My reservations about college have changed dramatically. It's not a scary place at all. I really enjoy being around my college friends. They are mature and so much fun." Fatima, North Side High School
