Class Cancellation and College Closing Procedure

Class Cancellation and College Closing Procedure

When it is deemed necessary to cancel classes and/or events, or close the college for any reason, it is the goal of the college to make the decision as quickly as possible so that there is a minimum amount of confusion. For snow emergencies, we will attempt to make the decision no later than 6:00 a.m. In certain situations, it may be possible to make the decision to close the evening classes at the same time day classes are canceled. However, if it is necessary to cancel the evening activities at the college on a separate basis, every effort will be made to announce the decision by 3:00 p.m.

Should a situation arise that would require closing an individual building or buildings, but not an entire campus, it will be the responsibility of the area Vice President(s) to determine whether the activities in that building shall be canceled or reassigned.  This decision will be made in conjunction with the Vice President for Business depending on the nature of the emergency.

NOTE:  Continuing Education classes will follow the lead of their respective campuses and locations for snow emergencies.  East Campus, Macomb’s Michigan Technical Education Center (M-TEC), Sports and Expo Center, Macomb Center for the Performing Arts, Lorenzo Cultural Center, and Student Community Center classes and events will be handled on an individual basis depending upon the needs of their activities and the existing conditions. It is the responsibility of the area Vice President, in conjunction with the Vice President for Business, to make that decision.


In addition to the website, the appropriate information will be supplied to radio and television stations.
