2020-2021 Catalog

Cancellations and Delays

In the event of a delay, the opening time will be the top of the hour (9 a.m., 10 a.m., etc.). For classes with other start times, as is the case on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the next full class session will meet (e.g., for a 9 a.m. opening, the 9:25 a.m. class will be the first to convene; for a 10 a.m. opening, the 10:50 a.m. class will be the first to meet). Any classes that were scheduled to start prior to the stated opening will be considered canceled.

A decision to delay or cancel classes is typically made by 6 a.m. Class cancellations and delays are announced on the following:

  • BCC Emergency Notification System
  • Local/regional TV and radio stations
  • MyBCC
  • MyBCC Mobile App
  • BCC Home Page — www.berkshirecc.edu
  • Facebook @berkshirecc
  • Twitter @berkshirecc
  • Instagram @berkshirecc

BCC closings are also recorded on the voice message that callers first hear when calling BCC’s main telephone number at 413-499-4660. Students may also receive notification of cancellations by utilizing the Emergency Notification System.

If the days are available, canceled classes will be made up at the end of the semester.
