Be the First to Know With the RCTC Emergency Notification System!

The RCTC emergency notification system makes it possible for students and employees to receive cell phone and/or e-mail notices of time sensitive, campus-related emergencies that threaten life safety or severely impact campus operation.

In an emergency, you will be sent a text message to the cell number(s) and/or e-mail address(es) you provide.  Emergency notifications will note the nature of the emergency, what action, if any, you are to take, and where to find more information.  You will also be alerted to campus closings, delays or cancellations.

Depending on the nature and severity of the emergency, other mechanisms may include alerts on the RCTC website and voicemail messages on campus phones.  In emergency situations, an important resource for information is always the RCTC emergency website at

Check your email in the coming weeks for more information!

Do you need to check out a camera for a classroom project? Please keep the following policy in mind to assure the equipment is cared for properly.

Acceptable Use: The digital video/photography camera kits are available for students for academic purposes only. The primary users include but are not limited to Digital Arts students currently enrolled in Digital Arts classes. Other enrolled students may use the equipment, however the students must have their instructor provide the Technology Support Center staff with a list of students that will be required to use the equipment.

Terms of Agreement: All students must provide the Technology Support Center staff their student ID at the time of checkout. If you do not have a student ID, you may get one from the Goddard Library.

Statement of Responsibility: Students are responsible for the proper use and care of the equipment when it is in their possession. Camera kits should not be left in a car or placed where extreme temperature conditions may harm the equipment. They must also be used in a responsible manner to minimize the risk of damage. Protect the camera at all times to reduce the chance of theft. Students are responsible for any damage to or loss of equipment. Equipment replacement costs are outlined on the contract and may be reviewed at time of checkout. Make sure all of the camera cables, remotes, head phones, etc. are in the kit at time of checkout. If there is an equipment malfunction (camera doesn’t work properly, bad cable, etc.,) please alert the TSC staff so that we may resolve the problem.

Fines: Fines are assessed if equipment is not returned to the TSC by the due date on the agreement form. Fines must be paid through the business office. Students with unpaid fines are not allowed access to the camera kits until a paid receipt from the business office is provided to the TSC staff. Fees that are unpaid for an extended time will be turned over to the State of Minnesota collection agency.

***Take care of the equipment better than if it was your own. Respect your fellow students by returning the camera kit on time!***
