The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the Bismarck-Mandan area from Tuesday, April 4 through Wednesday, April 5. Heavy snow and blizzard conditions are expected with 8 - 18 inches of snow accumulations and winds gusting up to 65 mph.
Due to the impact of the anticipated storm and our concern for our BSC community’s safety, BSC is taking the following precautions and giving the following guidance: 
  1. The Bismarck State College campus will be closed Tuesday, April 4. All classes and events will be canceled during this time period. Only designated essential personnel should report for work. 
  2. Due to the uncertainty of this blizzard, a decision about Wednesday, April 5, will be made Tuesday afternoon and announced via phone, text, BSC email and BSC social media channels.
  3. At this time, it is anticipated that it could take campus maintenance crews multiple days to clear the campus of the large amounts of snow. For your safety and that of essential campus workers, if you do not need to be on campus, please don’t be. 
  4. All students are encouraged to make decisions that are in their best interest and pre-plan accordingly for safe holiday travel, food, medicine and clothing needs. Those planning to travel should monitor weather and road conditions carefully ( and make prudent personal decisions about travel and safety. Be in good and respectful communication with your professors about your academic responsibilities, especially if you’re NOT planning to attend your classes.
  5. BSC residence halls will remain open. Any student who will be staying in a BSC residence hall during this campus closure should communicate this to Student & Residence Life at if you haven’t already done so.
  6. BSC Mystic Marketplace will be open on Monday, April 3, until 7 p.m. BSC Mystic Marketplace will be open for service 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4 with two entrée options (one for lunch, one to go) and grab and go items.
