    Officials did not reveal any further information about the call.

    Police officers from both Plano and the college investigated the threat. Using bomb-sniffing dogs,  Plano police conducted a surface-level search of the campus that revealed no suspicious devices or explosives.  

    With the all-clear given, classes are scheduled to resume at 4:30 p.m. Friday, school administrators said.

    An investigation into who made the call, and why, is under way.

    The threat did not impact the schedules of the six other Collin College campuses.

    In 2011, the college had a total enrollment of nearly 53,000 students over seven campuses in Plano, McKinney, Frisco, Allen and Rockwall.
