Severe weather closing procedure

  • If the college closes because of severe weather, announcements will be made as early as possible.
  • The Port Huron campus may close for day classes only, night classes only, or for both day and night classes. Day classes are defined as classes that begin between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Night classes are defined as classes that begin between 6 and 10 p.m. (Note: If the college is closed for day classes, but open for night classes, the Achievement Center, College Bookstore, Library and student support services offices will remain closed for the evening.)
  • The Port Huron campus also may close early at any point in the day or evening.
  • Off-campus centers make independent decisions about closing. Whether they are open or closed is not related to if the Port Huron campus is open or closed.
  • To ensure you are getting accurate information, check the front page of the college website (www.sc4.edu), check the portal or mobile app under “class cancellations,” listen to the voicemail message on the college’s main switchboard at 810-984-3881 or the class cancellation hotline at 810-989-5770, or check your SC4 email account. Please note: Cancellations by the instructor for individual classes will be reported only on the class cancellation hotline at 810-989-5770, through the SC4 portal and through other methods the instructor chooses.
  • Text alert messages available: You may sign up to get text alert messages about closings delivered to your cellular phone or other wireless device. Sign up at sc4.edu/alerts.
  • While details about closings also will be reported by local newspapers, radio and television stations, and their websites, the only information the college can guarantee the accuracy of for SC4 closings will be on the college website, social media, portal, class cancellation hotline, email and text alert messages.
  • Specifically for early closings: If the Port Huron campus closes early at any point in the day or evening, Campus Patrol will notifyclasses in session about the closing. Because of the possibility of closing early, students should monitor the various communications listed above throughout the day.
  • Because SC4 is not in a busing situation, the college’s decision on closing is not related to decisions to close by any K-12 school districts.
  • If the college must close for severe weather during finals week, special announcements will be made regarding final exams.
