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 cpcc.regroup.com
  • 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.

Inclement Weather Procedures

From time to time, CPCC operations are impacted by inclement or severe weather. When the college closes due to weather, all classes at all campuses are canceled. However, always assume the college is open unless you see or hear an announcement the college is in fact closed or the opening is delayed.
The college will provide information regarding weather closings and delays through the following channels:
CPCC student and faculty/staff email
CPCC website (www.cpcc.edu)
CPCC social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
CPCC Emergency Communication Phone Number (Call 704-330-6888)
Direct call and text via CPCC Critical Alert
Some local television and radio stations
CPCC TV (Time Warner Cable Channel 17)
When the announcement is made the college is closed, this means all classes are canceled, and all college campuses and facilities are closed to students, employees and visitors. If Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) are closed, any CPCC classes held at CMS locations are canceled as well.
Designated Security Services and Facilities Services personnel should report to work in accordance with their department’s operating procedures.
Decisions to close the college are based on reports from local law enforcement concerning road conditions, the current campus conditions of roads, parking lots, sidewalks and steps, electrical power, and Charlotte-area weather forecasts.
Please remember, automatic notifications will be sent to students and employees through the CPCC Critical Alert emergency notification text messaging and direct phone call system for those with up-to-date contact information enrolled in the system.
