Be sure to sign up for test alerts to be quickly informed if the college is closed or delayed due to adverse weather.
In the event of adverse weather, students should tune in to local news outlets for the status of the college’s operation. Radio stations carrying the announcement will be WKRK (1320 AM), WCVP (600 AM-Murphy and 95.9 FM-Robbinsville) and WCNG (102.7 FM). Television stations WLOS-TV (Asheville), WTVC-TV (Channel 9 in Chattanooga), and WRCB-TV (Channel 3 in Chattanooga) will make the announcement.
Students can also hear the status of the college’s operation on our answering machine by calling 828-837-6810 or checking the web site at www.tricountycc.edu or check the TCCC Facebook page.
The announcement will be one of the following:
- TCCC is open and operating on a normal schedule.
- TCCC is closed.
- TCCC will operate on a delayed schedule.
In some cases, the operation status of the Graham County Center may differ from that of the main campus. Listen carefully for the announcement pertaining to the campus you attend.
If TCCC is operating on a delayed schedule, classes or work will begin at the time of opening at their scheduled time. The delayed hours are cancelled hours. For example, if the college is delayed two hours, classes or work will begin at 10:00 a.m.; at 10:00 a.m. you will attend your 10:00 a.m. class or report for work. Any other scheduled class time before 10:00 a.m. is cancelled. If you have a class that meets 9:00 a.m. – Noon, you will miss the first hour of that class, arriving at 10:00 a.m. Also, if you have an 8:00 or 9:00 a.m. class that only meets for an hour, it is cancelled. The instructors of the cancelled classes will inform you of how the time missed will be made up.
