St. John's University New York Campuses Closed

Out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty, and administration and in consideration of the widespread regional snow removal efforts which are expected, all St. John's University's New York campuses (Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan, and Oakdale) will be closed Monday, January 26, and Tuesday, January 27, 2015, and all classes will be canceled.

The Registrar's office has extended the add/drop deadline to Wednesday, February 4, 2015. This does not apply to Law School students.
