Reminder about campus closures due to weather

Winter has arrived. It’s important to become familiar with Mohawk’s procedures for closing the college, and to learn how to keep informed when threatening weather approaches.

Closing campuses is not a decision the college takes lightly. Mohawk will only close when normal operations would pose a danger to students and employees while on campus or would prevent large numbers of them from coming to campus or returning safely to their homes.

(UPDATED January 27, 2022) If the campus is closed due to hazardous weather, all in-person classes and events will be cancelled. Virtual classes and services will continue. The DBARC will be closed and all athletic activities cancelled. Employees who can work remotely will be expected to do so.

If hazardous weather conditions are in the forecast, it is strongly advised that students and employees check Mohawk’s website, social media channels and stay tuned to local media for the latest information.

The following is a list of sites where closure information is posted:

The best way to learn about closures is to sign up for Mohawk’s SAM (Security Alert Messenger) service. SAM uses text messages, social media, the college website, email and local media to inform students and employees that the college is closed. SAM is also used for lockdowns and other emergencies that require rapid communication with the college community.
