Inclement Weather Policy

Whenever it appears that the College may be closed,  closing early, or opening late due to inclement weather, faculty, staff, and students should listen to radio stations WESR (103.3 FM), or WCTG (96.5 FM), or television stations WTKR (Norfolk), WAVY (Norfolk), WVEC (Norfolk), or WBOC (Salisbury) to receive information about the status of the College.

Information will also be posted on the college website (, Facebook page, and Twitter (@ESCCtweet).

Information will also be sent through ESCC Alert.

Calls will not be made to individuals.

Students should assume that the College is open unless official notification has been made. If the college is open, students should consider attendance requirements as provided in individual instructor syllabi.

Students are strongly encouraged to register for ESCC Alert to receive urgent text messages and emails in emergency situations such as weather-related closures. Registration is easy and free. If you need assistance, contact Bill LeCato at 757.789.1797.
