Adverse Weather Policy

Section 2.I – Adverse Weather

Occasionally, the College closes or delays classes as the result of a threat of adverse weather conditions. The President of the College and his/her representative will make the final decision. Please note the College will operate on a normal schedule unless posted as listed below. Also the closing of the four-county public school systems does not necessarily mean the College will be closed.

The President, or his/her representative, shall make the necessary arrangements for publicity regarding the closing of school through the local newspapers, radio, television stations, social media, a taped message at (252) 492-2061, and on the VGCC webpage at

Classes missed as the result of the closing of school due to adverse weather or other factors shall be made up using a method to be determined by the President of the College in accordance with the policies of the State Board of Community Colleges.
