Off-Campus Notifications

Closing of an off-campus location (APG, Public Schools, etc...) will result in automatic canceling of scheduled HCC classes at that particular location even if on-campus classes are not canceled. Therefore, College personnel and students are not expected to attend these classes. Off-campus HCC classes and activities will also be canceled if the College announces that it has officially closed.
