Winter is Coming… Does the College Have Your Cell Phone Number?

As the season for inclement weather approaches, now is the time to make sure the college has all of your up-to-date contact information, so you’ll be the first to know whether you get to leave early (or sleep in) if the college closes due to inclement weather!

Here’s how to confirm, update and add your mobile, office and home phone number(s) – plus any non-CPCC email addresses – to the Critical Alert emergency notification text/phone/email system:

  • Use your CPCC login and password at
  • From the left navigation, go to “Profile”
  • View your Personal Information page to update and add your contact information (email and phone number)

The college sends communication concerning severe weather closings and other critical incidents via Critical Alert, CPCC email, CPCC social media and the CPCC website first before anything is sent to local media. Don’t spend your time waiting for an announcement on TV or radio. Make sure your contact information is up-to-date on Critical Alert now, and simply receive a text and phone call whenever a critical incident occurs.

Please note that you cannot opt out of Critical Alert notification emails to your CPCC account because your CPCC email is the college’s official channel of communication.
