Tri-County Technical College

During the winter months, we prepare for the possibility of inclement weather in the form of freezing rain, snow, and ice. Any decision to close the College and/or cancel classes will be announced using the College’s inclement weather notification procedures described below (also posted on eTC Message Center Tab, Campus Safety Channel).

All inclement weather notifications will be made available to students and employees as follows:

Emergency Notifications: The College will notify you using the following methods if classes are cancelled or the College is closed.

  • Text: To ensure we have your correct number, log into eTC, Message Center Tab. On the left you will see a link to check the phone number to contact you in the event of an emergency or inclement weather. Click on the link to check and update the number if needed. 
  • Voice Alert: A voicemail will be issued to the same number listed for Text above.
  • Email: An email will be issued to all employees and students.

In addition to the Emergency Notifications listed above, inclement weather closing information also will be announced as follows:

  • Public Website: Visit to check for inclement weather announcements posted at the top of the webpage.
  • eTC: There will be a posting in the Critical Alerts channel on the Message Center tab.

Additional information:

  • Do NOT rely on local media outlets (TV and radio) for closing information and directions. Those announcements are designed for the general public. Please refer to direct communications from the College to be sure that you have complete details.
  • For employees: If the College closes due to one or more counties closing in the service area, only essential personnel (maintenance, Security) should report to work. If classes are cancelled but the College is open, then employees should use their judgment in deciding if it is safe for them to report to work and communicate accordingly with their supervisors.
