In our southern location, snow, tornados or other inclement weather gives rise to questions regarding the College closings or delays particularly since the College is a commuter campus. Weather monitoring alerts are issued from Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast, a facility of Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast and through the NOAA weather alert radio located in the Administrative Suite. In the event a decision to alter the operating status of the College becomes necessary due to inclement weather, the decision will be made by the President or the President's designee.

As soon as a decision is made regarding a change in the College's operating status, employees and students will be alerted of such by way of the following as applicable:

  • Automated messaging system (Contact Now)
  • Overhead audible paging system
  • Local television stations including WBTV (3), WSOC (9), and WCNC (36)
  • College's primary telephone line (704-403-1555)
  • College website
