text message alerts

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill offers a complimentary early alert system for all Commencement attendees. The system is designed to inform you, via text message, if the main ceremony has been delayed or canceled due to weather or any unexpected circumstances.

  • You will not be inundated with messages. This service is designed to be used only in the case of urgent messages.
  • Numbers will not be sold to third parties and will be purged following Commencement.
  • On average, messages will arrive within five minutes of initiations. Speeds are dependent upon individual phone carriers.
  • This is not Alert Carolina.
