Goldey-Beacom College encourages its students, faculty, and staff to use their own discretion in determining safe travel conditions in the absence of official college closings or cancellations.
In the event of inclement weather or emergency, please do one of the following:
- Check for a text message and/or email message from the gbcALERT Notification System.
- Visit the College's website, www.gbc.edu. Closing information is immediately posted on the top of the homepage to the right of the College name.
- Call the College main number, (302) 998-8814, after 6 a.m. for an announcement of closing.
- Listen to one of the radio stations listed below after 5:30 a.m. for an announcement of closing. The announcement will stipulate whether it is just day classes or day and evening classes both. If the announcement does not specifically state that the College is closed for evening classes, be sure to listen again after 3 p.m. If the College is not announced as being closed for evening, then faculty and appropriate staff should report for duty.
When the College determines it is necessary to have a delayed opening due to inclement weather, classes scheduled to be in session at the delayed opening time will begin class at that time. For example, when a two-hour delay occurs and the College opens at 10 am, classes scheduled to start at 9:30 am will plan to have class from 10 am to the regularly scheduled end time of that class. If the class is regularly scheduled for 9:30 am - 10:45 am, then that class would meet from 10 am - 10:45 am.
