WCC eLearning inclement weather procedure

In the event of inclement weather, all online courses, including the online portion of hybrid courses, will be conducted as scheduled. Closures or delays announced for the Whatcom Community College campus will not apply to online instruction. However, a closure or delay may affect an on-campus proctored exam for an online course. In such a case, the instructor will notify the students of the revised exam time and location.

A student whose normal access to the internet is interrupted by inclement weather (for example, because of a power outage) is expected to make an effort to meet course deadlines by going to another location with internet access. However, individuals must make decisions to protect their own health and safety if conditions make it unsafe to travel. A student who cannot reach a location with internet access should contact the instructor as soon as possible.
