RENEWING YOUR ACCOUNT FOR 2012-2013

If you were registered for the Cal U Alerts emergency text messaging service during the 2011-2012 academic year, you need to extend or activate your service for the upcoming 2012-2013 year, as all accounts are active for one year only.  Below are instructions to extend your service.

CREATING A NEW ACCOUNT

If you were not registered for the Cal U Alerts emergency text messaging service during the 2011-2012 academic year, you are encouraged to register for the service for the 2012-2013 year.  Below are instructions to register for service.

 

·                Go to the Cal U web site and click on QUICKLINKS.

 

·                Click on the "Cal U Text Alert Registration" link.

 

·                You will be prompted to log in using your username and password.  This is the same username and password used to log onto your computer or for e-mail access.

 

·                At the Cal U Alerts page, provide the requested information under the New User Sign-up Form.

 

·                You will need to have your mobile phone with you when you register because a four-digit validation code will be sent to your phone by text during the sign-up process.  That validation code must be entered on the sign-up form in order to complete your registration.  An unvalidated phone number will not receive text messages from Cal U Alerts

 

·                Cal U Alerts is equipped to send emergency information to e-mail accounts at the same time that text messages are sent.  If you wish to receive emergency notification through e-mail, click on Services and add your campus e-mail and/or personal e-mail addresses.  These e-mail addresses will also need to be validated by replying to validation e-mails sent to your e-mail accounts.
