Reminder of Winter Weather Notice Procedures

Posted: Thu, 11/17/2016 - 8:12am in Campus

Since winter weather is upon us, it’s a good time to remind everyone about St. Cloud Technical & Community College weather closing procedures. These are also detailed in the SCTCC Student Handbook.

In the event it is necessary to close St. Cloud Technical & Community College due to extreme weather conditions or any other emergency situations, the following procedures will be followed: 

  1. In all cases, students are urged to use good judgment on whether to report to the College based on their individual situations
  2. Inclement weather announcements relative to St. Cloud Technical & Community College will be made through the following outlets:
    • WJON/WWJO #1240 Radio AM (St. Cloud)
    • KNSI/KCLD #1450 Radio AM (St. Cloud)
    • WCCO Radio #830 AM (Minneapolis)
    • KASM, Albany
    • KLTF, Little Falls
    • KWLM
    • KSTP TV
    • KARE 11 TV
    • WCCO Channel 4
    • SCTCC Star Alert (see below)
    • News

Keep in mind, the absence of an announcement concerning St. Cloud Technical & Community College means that campus is operating normally. To put this another way, the College never announces that it is open.

Sign up for Star Alert

Star Alert is a free SCTCC emergency notification system that makes it possible for students and employees to receive notices of campus-related emergencies via text, email, and voice alerts.

NOTE: SCTCC began using a new Star Alert system on October 30, 2014. If you signed up for Star Alert any time before then, you must sign up again to update your contact information.


Individual Class Cancellations

Instructors may announce individual class cancellations on D2L.

There also is a page on our website ( that lists all known class and event cancellations, but may not always list every cancellation. Contact your class instructor or event coordinator for the most accurate information.
