Inclement Weather Policy

Texarkana College has scheduled its instructional program to comply with the Common Calendar of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, as well as to meet instructional requirements for awarding credit hours earned. College instructors are obligated to meet all scheduled classes. If severe weather makes it necessary to cancel classes or to meet virtually, Texarkana College will utilize the RAVE emergency notification system to send text messages and emails to students, faculty and staff regarding the change in schedule. Texarkana College will also post updates and information regarding closures and schedule changes on the institution’s website located at and social media.

In addition, College authorities will make every effort to provide information to local media stations and social media outlets as a supplemental source of communication. However, authorized information and determinations on closures and schedule changes will be officially announced via institutional resources (TC RAVE emergency notification system utilizing texts and emails, and the institution’s website and social media sites). If College authorities cancel classes, then all work is delayed until the next class meeting or until a date determined by the instructor. If a student is in an area which experiences severe weather and the College has not officially closed, then it is that student’s responsibility to decide whether or not to attend class. The student must then contact the instructor for information concerning make-up of work missed.
