Inclement Weather Policy, and Emergency Notifications

MC Alert!

Montgomery College (MC) regards the safety and security of our students, employees and College visitors as a top priority. The College employs an emergency notification system, called “MC Alert,” to communicate information about emergency situations, school closings, and delays. MC Alerts are communicated as text messages, emails, notifications to College computers, alerts on the College’s EDU and MyMC websites, posts on the Montgomery College Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as messages on some digital signs on College property.

Those registering for emergency notification will be requested to give their name, e-mail address and phone number, and then to choose the Montgomery College ALERT option. Please note that while signing up for Montgomery College ALERT is free of charge, wireless carriers may charge users a fee to receive text messages.
