Delayed Opening of Classes

In some cases, the beginning of day classes and activities may be delayed to begin at the time indicated in the announcement. Please note that some radio or TV stations do not allow posting of a specific opening time. In such instances, please check QCC's Alert/Inclement Weather Line, the QCC Mobile App, QCC Alerts Text Message,, or the QCC Family Alert Email to Faculty and Staff for the College’s opening time.

All staff, except “essential personnel” who may already be at work, should report to work at the delayed start time. The decision to cancel or delay classes and activities will be based upon the best information available regarding: The operational status of the Campus – including heat, light and snow removal; and the accessibility of the Campus – including the availability of public transportation and street conditions in the City of Worcester. Conditions may vary greatly within the College’s service area and, therefore, when classes and activities are being held, students must ultimately determine if they are able to attend classes and if it is safe to do so. Students are encouraged to become familiar with the policies of their instructors regarding making up missed work.
