If an emergency occurs that may delay operations or close the university, all students, faculty and staff will be notified via email to their CMU email address.

In addition, CMU offers an emergency notification system — Central Alert — to provide information to users by phone, email and/or text message. The majority of faculty, staff and students are opted into the Central Alert system automatically. However, we strongly encourage everyone to visit the Central Alert registration page to verify your subscription information.

Students, faculty and staff are asked to provide their direct contact information to ensure they will be notified in a timely manner. This emergency contact information may include an alternate email address, home phone number, cell phone number and/or SMS (text).

Subscription data for Central Alert is updated weekly. If you sign up for Central Alert or modify your contact information, please expect that it may take up to one week for your enrollment to be registered.

If you have any problems, contact the Office of Information Technology Help Desk at 989-774-3662 or for an online chat session, visit OIT's website.
