The College is committed to providing the student with the maximum number of instructional days possible. In instances of emergencies, catastrophic events and severe weather conditions, the College initiates a procedure to determine if classes continue as scheduled. The three criteria that determine if classes will be held are:
- The municipalities and State Department of Transportation can confirm prior to 6 a.m. that the main roads and highways will be accessible;
The National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) will effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public. For more information please visit: http://www.dhs.gov/files/programs/ntas.shtm
- Campus Plant Operations can confirm that all buildings have heat, water, sufficient parking areas and clear access routes to campus buildings;
If these three criteria can be fulfilled, classes will be held.
