This policy applies to all persons regardless of whether they are licensed to carry a concealed weapon.

A “prohibited weapon” includes any form of firearm, knife, explosive, incendiary, or other weapon restricted under local, state, or federal regulation. “College property” includes, without limitation, all college-owned or leased vehicles, buildings or other structures, and real property (such as sidewalks, walkways, driveways, open spaces, and parking lots) under college control. Any person who questions the applicability of this policy to his or her potential situation shall obtain written permission from the college’s president or his or her designee before bringing or possessing the item(s) at issue to or at any location that would potentially be covered by this policy. Class Cancellation/Delay Start Procedures Inclement weather, mechanical systems failure, utility problems, or unforeseen circumstances may require classes to be cancelled or delayed. In the event that conditions affect Northwest Iowa Community College’s operations or schedule, students, faculty, and staff will be notified. Cancellations, early closure or a delay in starting will be made through announcements using the RAVE Alert Service. RAVE notifies all subscribers of important campus alerts.

You can find more information and a link to sign up for RAVE on the NCC website: www.nwicc.edu and look for the RAVE sign-up button at the bottom of the page.
