When RCTC has a snow day


The days are getting cooler, and winter’s right around the corner. Snow/cold weather days are no unheard of at RCTC, so be prepared when that first snowstorm hits.

If severe inclement weather or other emergency situation develops, the RCTC President, or designee, will make the decision to cancel classes and/or non-academic activities, delay openings, or close the campus.

Whenever possible, the decision for day classes/activities will be made prior to 6 a.m. and evening classes/activities by 3 p.m.; delays and closures will be publically announced through the radio and television media listed below:


Up to the minute information may also be viewed online at www.rctc.edu, KROC, and KTTC-TV.

We will also post information to RCTC’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Be the first to know about delays and closures by signing up for RCTC Emergency Alert, where you can get information via text or email.

Please keep this in mind: To attend or not attend classes when weather and road conditions are questionable should always be made in terms of what is best for your personal safety.  Weather and road conditions 75 miles west of Rochester can be much different than the conditions 75 miles north, south, or east of Rochester.

Other emergencies covered by this procedure would include such things as:  fire, tornado, bomb threats, other serious problems related to mechanical or electrical systems, or any other extremely hazardous situation in or around the campus

SPECIAL NOTE:  While a complete campus closure may occur at UCR, because of the shared facility space agreement with the City of Rochester, the UCR Regional Sports Center may remain open for scheduled community events.
