Safety of Students, Faculty and Staff Is Our Highest Priority

In an effort to keep our students safe and informed in emergencies, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges have systems in place to alert students, faculty and staff of school closings and other emergencies.

Emergency Alerts may be issued for the following reasons:

  • School Closings including weather related decisions
  • Bomb Threats
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Accidents
  • Terrorism
  • Other Imminent Dangers


How to Obtain College Delay/Closure Information

Students, staff and faculty are encouraged to use the following resources to obtain emergency/delay/closure information.

  • Visit the college website.  Emergency Alerts including delay/closure information will be posted. 
  • Current credit students and adjunct faculty will receive email notifications to their EICC live email account (name@live.eicc.edu).
  • Full time faculty and staff will receive email notifications to their EICC email account. (Name@eicc.edu)
  • The college’s Rave alert (EICC Alert) system will text current credit students and employees with a cell phone number on their academic or personnel record. For details on updating your contact information or on opting out of emergency texting, click here
  • Check our social media posts on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Consult area television and radio stations or their websites. Keep in mind that EICC may be one of hundreds of schools and businesses to notify these media. We cannot guarantee the timeliness of their reports.
