Current Campus Status


Clarification of Terms in the Event of a College Closure

Lines of authority: The President of the College or their designee has the authority to close the College, adjust hours of operations, and determine modes of operation. This includes closings, delays, and transitions to remote operations due to inclement weather, power outages, adjustment of work schedules for energy savings purposes, or any other disruption that may necessitate a change to normal work hours and modes of operation. The declaration of a state of emergency by the Governor does not supersede the authority of the President of the College or their designee but is always considered when determining College operations.

The College is closed: This means that classes will not be held; instructors will communicate alternate plans to their students; offices are closed; and only essential staff report to campus.
