Academic Advising

Cancellation of Classes/Two Hour Delay

The College will hold classes as usual unless there is a utility malfunction or severe weather conditions. The College does not follow the same weather cancellation or delay standards used by public K-12 school systems because we do not operate buses and our students are adults. We, therefore, align our closing and delay decisions with other local colleges, businesses and industry. We are sensitive to our students who are parents and the challenges created by public K-12 weather cancellations plus the broad geographic area we serve with its significantly different weather conditions. Students should use their own judgment as to whether it is safe for them to drive to classes. In the event that conditions are such that the Claremont campus or Academic Centers in Keene and Lebanon must close or cancel classes, announcements will be made by 6:00am for the day classes and 2:00pm for evening classes that begin at 5:00pm and after. Notifications will be made through RVCC Alerts (see College website for additional RVCC Alerts information), the College website (www.rivervalley.edu), and the radio and TV stations listed below:
