Shelton State Community College Responds to Safety Threat

Shelton State Community College Logo

July 27, 2022 – Earlier today, Shelton State Community College was one of several Alabama Community College System (ACCS) institutions targeted for the threat of potential danger. Both campus communities were notified immediately according to safety procedures and guidelines, and all faculty, staff, and students were evacuated safely.  Following thorough search efforts, the threats were deemed false and both campuses were cleared.


The College and the ACCS take all threats to safety seriously.  The Tuscaloosa Police Department and The University of Alabama Police Department are to be commended for their service and immediate response. A full investigation will now commence, and every effort will be made to identify those responsible for today’s threat.


Circumstances on neither campus pose any danger to students or employees, however, the College will remain closed for today.  Normal hours of operation will resume on Thursday, July 28, 2022.


Authorities at all Alabama community colleges are working closely with local and state law enforcement to ensure continued campus safety. No threats to any institutions have been deemed credible at this time.
