Inclement weather policy

Jefferson Community and Technical College seldom closes because of snow or other inclement weather.

  • However, the college does occasionally use a delayed opening. 
  • When the college announces a delayed schedule, students, faculty and staff are given a time to report to the college.
  • For example:
    • Jefferson Community and Technical College will open today at 10am. 
    • Simply report to the class or workstation where you ordinarily would be at 10am for that day and follow a regular class or work schedule for the rest of the day. 
    • It could be that your class has only minutes to meet.
    • You should report to that class anyway.

Note: Closing and delayed schedules can vary by campus. 

  • The college makes closing and delayed decisions based on road and campus conditions, as well as classes, clinicals and other campus schedules. 
  • It is not based on the decisions of other colleges or the decisions of local school systems.
  • Decisions to close or delay are made as early in the morning as possible, based on current weather conditions.
  • Please use your own judgment as to whether you should travel during inclement weather.

News media are given the information, but some stations cannot report details, such as the time of day classes will begin.  If you hear about a delayed schedule, it is best to double check one of the college's official sources.
