Inclement Weather Policy

When the Chief Academic Officer, or designated official, determines, based on available data, that the weather or other conditions have made roads impassable, the news media will be notified that the College is closed. Closings will be effective for all College operations, on and off campus. 

In the event of inclement weather, please tune to one of the radio/TV stations listed for information concerning the College closing. Our local radio station (96.3FM) and KAIT TV Channel 8 in Jonesboro, will be the two notified first because they are the fastest and easiest of our media to contact during inclement weather.
