This includes but is not limited to weather closures, power outages, police emergencies, catastrophes and/or hazardous exposures.

Important Safety Information

Tragic shootings throughout the country are a stark reminder that we must know what to do in the worst-case scenario, so Collin College developed a new video to illustrate how to react in the event of an active shooting on campus. Please take a few minutes to review our new Active Shooter on Campus video because nothing is more important than your safety and well-being..
