As we approach the winter season, we can expect frequent snow and occasional severe winter weather. Closings and delays will be implemented ONLY when extreme winter conditions exist.

Information on:

Day Classes

For inclement weather occurring during the night, a decision regarding the following day’s classes will be made no later than 6 a.m. If the college is to close, or open late, the various media will be contacted by 6:30 a.m. In addition, a message will be placed on the college’s web site,

The college also provides a text messaging service to announce college closings. Anyone wishing to receive a text message when the college closes due to weather can sign up on myInfo. Once you're signed in, select "TxtMsg Options" and register your cell phone number. TC3 does NOT charge for this service. Charges may apply through your cellular provider; by registering you agree to be responsible for those charges. Unregistered mobile phones will NOT receive this service.

You may continue to rely on the college web site, radio, and television stations for accurate information regarding the open/closed status of the building. (back to top)

Evening Classes

On those days when inclement weather is occurring during the day, a decision regarding evening classes will be made no later than 3 p.m. and immediately communicated over the public address system on campus, on the college’s web page, as well as to the various media. If there are any unique situations affecting the closing status of the extension centers, they will be announced as a part of the radio message. (back to top)


The college will remain open for approved and scheduled activities on Saturdays and Sundays.

Credit Courses

Faculty members have the authority to cancel class due to inclement weather/road conditions. Faculty members must contact the students in their class and the security department. An announcement will not be placed on radio/television stations.

Offices/Services Available

Departments that maintain Saturday or Sunday hours should make their own decisions about whether to close due to inclement weather/road conditions. If a decision is made to close, the individual in charge must notify the security department. An announcement will not be placed on radio/television stations.


Workshop coordinators have the authority to cancel workshops due to inclement weather/road conditions. Workshop coordinators should contact all participants if a workshop is cancelled or the local media if they are unable to contact everyone. The workshop coordinator must contact the security department as well.

Special Events

Event coordinators have the authority to cancel their events due to inclement weather/road conditions. Each department that sponsors weekend events will clearly identify who has the authority to cancel the event. The Office of Campus Activities, through the room reservation system, coordinates the scheduling of activities. The individual responsible for making a decision regarding cancellation of the event should be stated on the reservation form. A copy of the reservation form will then be forwarded to the security department. Event coordinators must notify the security department if an event is cancelled and the local media to announce the cancellation. (back to top)

Students in the residence halls can still get meals at the TC3 Eatery from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on an emergency closing day. Two meals are offered during that time frame. If there is a delayed opening later than 10 a.m., then the start time would shift time accordingly.
