emergency Weather Closings

College Philosophy on Weather Closings

Fox Valley Technical College will strive to remain open to serve students. If the weather is threatening and campus stays open, the choice to report for class is ultimately up to the student. Driving conditions may vary across the wide geographical region served by FVTC. Every effort will be made to help the student make up educational experiences lost due to severe weather conditions. It is the student’s responsibility to contact his or her instructor(s) to make up missed assignments.

Emergency Alert Sign-Up

Appleton/Oshkosh Campus Closing

When severe weather conditions exist in the morning, the college will announce a campus closing by 6:00 a.m.

If the college is open and severe weather or other conditions develop during the day, the conditions will be evaluated and if possible, a decision regarding the cancellation of evening classes will be made by 3:00 p.m. for evening classes/activities.

The decision on campus closings will be made by the college president or his/her designee based on the advice of the director of facilities or his/her designee.

Closing information is provided to television, radio stations, and through the College's emergency mass notification system.

When the campuses are closed, faculty and staff should not report to work. The buildings will be locked.

Regional Centers Closing

Generally speaking, a closure will apply to all campuses and regional centers/sites. If not, the notification will specifically state which sites are closing.
