Roane State Community College
Student Emergency Calls
The only option the college has to locate a student on campus is via the student's class schedule. We will not be able to locate you if you are not in class. Therefore, there must be an extreme emergency to justify interrupting the classroom. The office of the Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students will determine the legitimacy of the emergency call. An extreme emergency would include a sick child needing to be picked up at daycare; a serious injury to a family member; a death in the family, or other traumatizing event. The classroom will not be disturbed to deliver a message to remind the student to take care of personal business matters such as work schedules; keeping doctor appointments; to pay bills; to stop by the grocery store. These issues have to be managed by the student outside the classroom. Please make sure you communicate daily with relevant family members and others about your whereabouts especially if your schedule changes in any way. Remember, we cannot locate you if you are not in class should a legitimate emergency arise.
