Due to extreme cold and inclement weather, St. Cloud Technical and Community College is closed Wednesday, Jan. 30. and will remain closed until 10:30 a.m. for employees and until 11 a.m. for students on Thursday, Jan. 31st. 

All classes and events for Jan. 30, including afternoon and evening, are cancelled. 

Classes and events on Jan. 31 that start at 11 a.m. or later for the afternoon and evening will be held as scheduled.

Employees: do not report to work until 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 31 unless directed otherwise by your supervisor. Those employees considered essential will be notified by their supervisors. Employees are to use the MSL leave code to account for time not worked during the closure.


On Thursday, Jan. 31, the Northway Building will open at 7 a.m. All other buildings will open at 10 a.m. 

Everyone should use your own best judgment in making decisions about travel in inclement weather. Please use extreme caution outdoors as regular temps are expected to be as cold as -29 degrees with wind chills approaching -60 degrees Wednesday, and as cold as -20 degrees in early Thursday morning with dangerous wind chills, warming to -5 degrees for a high later in the day. Dress in layers, always wear hat and mittens and do not be outdoors for more than 5-10 minutes. Also use precautions if traveling as these extreme cold temperatures can cause vehicles to stall. 

If you haven't done so, please sign up for Star Alert so you are aware of campus closures. Even if you are not signed up for Star Alert, all SCTCC students, faculty, and staff will receive an email.
