Wondering whether school is closed?

Dec 08, 2016
Winter is here! Read up on how the college determines whether to stay open and how you can find out when campus is closed.

It is the practice of Lake Michigan College (LMC) to maintain normal College operations on all regularly scheduled days, except in those cases when severe weather conditions prevent this.

If the College is open, students will make their own determination concerning attendance on unfavorable travel days, based on personal judgments and the conditions of each unique situation. In instances where travel is perilous, students must communicate their absence to the instructor. Faculty are encouraged to be flexible in their classroom policies regarding make-up work for students who are unable to get to classes due to severe weather conditions.

When the College closes due to severe weather or other campus emergencies, the announcements will be made in several ways:

  1. through the College's RaveAlert System
  2. on the home page (in most cases dependent on the availability of internet access to college officials)
  3. through local television and radio stations
  4. through College Facebook and Twitter pages

Please check these various sources of information for closing information rather than calling the College. If the College is closed, you will be able to find out through one or more of the above sources.
