NEW YORK — Mercy College campuses have been cleared to reopen after a threat closed all four campuses Tuesday afternoon.

The school posted on Facebook around 4:20 p.m., saying the school was being evacuated at all four campuses.  Students received emails regarding the evacuation and that classes and activities were canceled for the rest of the day.

According to LoHud, the college received an “alarming communication through telephone” to the Dobbs Ferry campus.

The school tweeted around 7 p.m., saying the campuses were cleared and the threat was found to be “unsubstantiated.”

Classes and all activities are scheduled to resume normally Wednesday.

Mercy College has campuses in Dobbs Ferry, Manhattan, Yorktown Heights and the Bronx.

It’s unknown if police have a suspect regarding the call.
