Winter is Coming… Does the College Have Your Mobile Number?

Critical Alert! Emergency Notification System

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 can get out of class early (or sleep in) if the college closes due to inclement weather.

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

  • Use your Central Piedmont login and password at Click on the profile icon in the upper right corner, select “My Profile.”
  • To add text/call information, scroll down to the “PHONE NUMBERS” section and look for the “+ Add New Phone Number” option below any existing phone numbers.
  • To delete an incorrect phone number, select the trash can icon to the right of it.
  • Click “SAVE.”

The college sends communication concerning severe weather closings and other critical incidents via Critical Alert, email, social media, and the Central Piedmont 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 closure or critical incident occurs.

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