Campus Carry

Open Carry

On January 1, 2016, open carry of handguns for those who have a license went into effect. This means that these license holders will be able to carry a handgun in a holster where it is viable to everyone.

How does this affect Cisco College?
The short answer is, it doesn't. The law prohibits the open carry of firearms on college campuses. This includes all property such as parking lots.

Campus Carry

August 1, 2016 is the effective date for concealed carry on four-year universities. Although a license holder might be able to carry a concealed handgun at a university, one cannot carry on a community college until the effect date listed below.

August 1, 2017 is the effective date for Concealed Campus Carry on two-year public colleges. Under the new Campus Carry Law, Cisco College will establish reasonable rules, regulations or other provisions regarding the carrying of concealed handguns by license holders on its campuses. Under the law, Cisco College may not create provisions that generally prohibit license holders from carrying concealed handguns on either campus.

In keeping with the law, Cisco College will consult with students, staff and faculty regarding special considerations for the student populations on each campus and the uniqueness each campus environment to develop the most appropriate and fair rules under the new law.
