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. The media list includes the following:
Students should watch for such announcements on Little Rock area television stations. If the college closes or changes hours of operation because of adverse weather conditions, the college will post the news to this website. In addition, the news will be posted to the college Facebook, Instagram and X accounts. The college also recommends that all students and employees sign up with the RAVE Emergency Notification System. When you sign up, all closures or changes in hours of operation will be delivered directly to your cell phone.
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.
