BRCC delays start of semester, extends fall registration
BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge Community College says it will delay the start of the fall semester until Aug. 29 after widespread flooding ravaged the surrounding community.
BRCC says it will remain closed for the rest of the week.
School officials say the continued closure will provide the college with an opportunity to assess the institution’s facilities and grounds. Students, faculty and staff will be allowed the opportunity to resolve current situations before classes return to session.
The fall registration period is extended through Friday, Aug. 26 with the start of classes delayed by one week to Monday, Aug. 29.
BRCC students, faculty and staff are encouraged to monitor their BRCC email accounts, the college’s website and social media channels for other updates.
