Inclement Weather Guidelines

Decisions concerning the closing or late opening of DSLCC due to inclement weather will be made by a college administrator in consultation with personnel who live in various parts of the region. The decision is generally made before 6:45 a.m. for day classes and 4:30 p.m. for night classes. Students may access this information through local radio and TV stations, the college website, the college switchboard, or an email to official VCCS student email addresses.

If the announcement says that DSLCC opens at 10:00 a.m. or on a “delayed schedule,” all classes meet, but for a shorter time period than normally. The day class schedule below is in effect. Evening classes either meet at the normal time or do not meet at all, and announcements are made in the same manner as day schedule changes.
