UA-PTC Inclement Weather Policy and RAVE text alert

February 23, 2022

In the event that the weather is so severe that the college administration believes that life and property may be in danger, the chancellor of the college may cancel classes until weather conditions improve.

When such a decision is made, the news media will be notified. Any changes to college operations will be distributed to college student and employee email lists, on the college website, college mobile app, college-affiliated social media, and Little Rock area television stations.

If there is no announcement, students should assume the college is open.

Because University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College is a commuter campus, inclement weather has a greater adverse impact than on a residential campus. The effects fall unevenly on individual students as road conditions and circumstances vary. Thus, individual decisions are required when hazardous weather conditions exist but the college is officially open.

How to stay informed

If the college closes or changes hours of operation because of adverse weather conditions, the college will post the news to the multiple platforms listed above.

The college strongly recommends that all students and employees sign up with the RAVE text alert system. When you sign up, all closures or changes in hours of operation will be immediately delivered to your cell phone. RAVE is used only for college closures and other emergencies.
