Campus Closings & Announcements

RCC Alert

RCC Alert is a college service used to send emergency alerts, notifications, and updates to your cell phone, pager, and/or e-mail account. In the event of a campus closing or emergency, RCC Alert will send important updates to landline phones, cell phones, e-mail addresses, or other mobile devices. The college community may sign up for RCC Alerts by going to the RCC website. Multiple devices (cell phones, pagers, PDAs) may be added to an RCC Alert account. Alerts can be sent to all devices listed on the account.

Inclement Weather and Non-Scheduled Closings

The health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors is a priority at RCC. When inclement weather happens, the College will exercise due caution regarding college operations. Inclement weather is defined as any condition that may affect normal college operations and/or the safety of the RCC community and may include snow, ice, flooding, high wind, tornado, hurricane, or other dangerous weather events. Damage caused to the campus or sites, including power outages, will follow the College’s continuity of operations plan. RCC’s primary method of communication to alert the RCC community of inclement weather is through RCC Alert. All faculty and staff are required to sign up for this service. Students should also sign up for RCC Alert to ensure accurate messaging. To sign up, visit the RCC Alert page. Messages will also be posted on RCC’s social media channels and the website, and area radio and television stations will be notified. Decisions regarding closings and delays will be made by 6:00 a.m., except in rare cases. A notification to cancel evening classes should be made by 3:00 p.m.
