SUNY New Paltz students, faculty and staff can receive a phone call, text message, and/or e-mail in the event of a delay or cancellation due to inclement weather or on-campus emergency.
SUNY New Paltz has partnered with Rave Wireless to offer NP Alert as is part of our fully integrated and coordinated notification system. Faculty, staff and students have the ability to sign-up to receive notifications in the event of a delay or cancellation due to inclement weather (weather alert) or other on-campus emergency. It augments other communications tools, including the university homepage, broadcast e-mail alerts, a recorded hotline (257-INFO), the university switchboard and Welcome Center, and a coordinated use of public media outlets, used to convey urgent messages.
All students are subscribed by default and must login to http://my.newpaltz.edu to opt-out or customize their contact preferences. Students: Read instructions to remove yourself from receiving a text message (opt-out), or customize contact preferences.
Sign up is currently voluntary for faculty and staff, but strongly encouraged. Please read the instructions for customizing your contact preferences if you are already registered, or login to my.newpaltz.edu and follow the link to NP Alert in the Faculty/Staff Services channel, to the "Registration" section.
There will be no advertising or non-emergency alerts sent to you, unless you choose to join the optional groups offered.
Standard text messaging rates apply for text messages received.
