How to Receive Emergency Information from LCC

In the event that LCC closes due to inclement weather or other emergency, we get the word out via the LCC website, social media, Canvas, email, text messages, and regional media including Portland television stations. LCC also uses an on-campus emergency notification system that utilizes the large digital clock displays in every classroom.

Help us connect with you by keeping your phone number, email, and address up-to-date in ctcLink. Students - per Department of Education guidelines, please let us know within 14 days if your physical location changes. Update your home or temporary address by logging in to the mobile view of ctcLink and selecting My Profile from the menu on the left, then selecting Contact Info. Make sure that your mobile phone is marked as "Preferred" so that you will receive important text notifications in the event of an emergency. If you work on campus, the contact information you enter through Employee Self Service will override your student account if they are different. Get more info on our ctcLink webpages.

To learn more, please refer to the LCC Emergency Handbook, which contains LCC’s Crisis Communication Procedure and process for closing campus (in inclement weather, we make initial notifications about canceling day classes by 6 am and evening classes by 2 pm).

When the college is closed, it means there are no classes, events or other activities. Students should not come to campus.

Use the LCC Directory to find contact information for your instructors or other college personnel if needed.

Individuals who work on campus should watch their email during a closure for details. When in doubt about whether or not to report to work, please contact your supervisor.

If classes are canceled but offices are open, some campus events and activities may be held depending on conditions. To find out about specific events, check the LCC website and/or our Facebook and Twitter sites for exceptions to the closure.

Refer to the LCC Athletics website for information about athletic events.

For other questions about LCC, please check out the Student Frequently Asked Questions page on our website.
