North Arkansas College is reminding the campus community about how the college makes closing decisions and how the public can stay informed about college closings. In general, Northark will be open for normal business operations during its posted hours of operation unless announced otherwise. When inclement weather arrives, Northark follows a decision-making process led by Cabinet which prioritizes the safety and well-being of our campus community when determining operating status. Please note a change this year as the closing decision will be made independently by Northark and will not necessarily mirror Harrison or Berryville School Districts decision. Employees should note when classes are cancelled, offices are closed.
Closing decisions are split into three time periods:
Day classes - Day classes are classes occurring before 5 p.m. Northark will make a good faith effort to announce the decision before 6:00 a.m. each morning to accommodate individuals who drive long distances.
Afternoon classes - Afternoon classes begin before 5:00 p.m. and end after 5:00 p.m. and will be handled individually. The instructor will notify students if class will be cancelled.
Evening Classes - Evening classes are classes occurring after 5 p.m. Northark will make a good faith effort to announce a decision about evening classes by 3:00 p.m. to allow adequate travel to campus.
