Cancellation and Delayed Opening Policy


The decision to cancel classes or to delay opening the facilities is often very difficult. We do our best to base the decision on the most current weather service information and predictions available. Our judgment is made on conditions in the Greater Hartford area at the time the decision is made. Since weather and road conditions often differ dramatically in our region, please use your own judgment to decide if you are able to arrive and return home from class safely during periods of inclement weather.

Emergency announcements will be aired at 2 p.m. on the day of the occurrence and by 6:30 a.m. for Saturday classes. They will also run on answering machines at the Hartford Campus (860) 548-2400 or (800) 433-4723 (Press "6" for weather closing information) and Groton Site (860) 449-8157. Additionally, the following radio and television stations will be notified:
 

WDRC (1360 AM/103 FM) WTIC-(1080 AM/96.5 FM)
