Emergency Notification System

Students’ D2L email addresses are automatically enrolled in the college’s emergency alert system (Regroup). Students are encouraged to add cell phone numbers and personal email addresses to the system. Adding your cell phone will allow the receipt of emergency text and voice messages, in addition to an email.

First-time Login

1. Sign in to your D2L home page
2. Click “HERE” in the Emergency Alert Login box (clicking on this link will open a new tab)

5. Once a password is entered, you will have access to add phone numbers and personal email addresses.

Adding Personal Email Addresses and Cell Phone Numbers

1. Confirm you are on the Email/Phone tab
2. Add personal email addresses in the top section (your primary email address is your D2L address and cannot be changed or deleted).
3. Add cell phones in the bottom section to receive texts and voice alerts.

* The college reserves the right to use this system in the future for general notifications and announcements as well as emergency alerts. Students will always have access (with username and password) to make changes to their personal email and cell phone selections.
