Adverse Weather Policy

Should it become necessary to close the College because of adverse weath­er (storms, ice, snow, etc.), the President of the College or his representa­tive will make an announcement on local radio and television, the College website, and campus voice mail. A separate announcement will be made by the President or his representative about the operational status of the College. Because so many of the College’s students have children attending Onslow County Schools, normally the College will close or delay opening in conjunc­tion with the school system; however, it is not required to do so and may occa­sionally announce a different decision with regard to adverse weather.

The College is committed to the delivery of instructional services for which students have paid tuition. Therefore, in the event class time is missed due to adverse weather, the College will make every effort to deliver course content.

A variety of mechanisms may be employed to make up course content. These include, but are not limited to, adding additional minutes to remaining class sessions, assigning out of class or online coursework, assigning class proj­ects, holding classes during scheduled breaks, or extending the semester.
