Receive important notices from the college directly to your cell phone

Forsyth Tech now offers a service that will notify you in the event of campus closings due to weather, power outages, or other emergencies. This will allow you to receive important notices from the college directly to your cell phone through text messaging, or your favorite email account.

In the event of a campus emergency or a school closing due to inclement weather, an alert message will be sent out to any text-capable device such as a mobile phone, PDA, Blackberry, or an e-mail address that you have registered with the system.

  • You can use a different username, password, and email address. You don't have to use your TechLink account.
  • Opt-out by = This allows you to choose when your email and phone will be removed from TechAlerts. You will receive a notification when your account is going to expire.
  • Text messaging charges dependent upon your carrier and calling plan apply. Forsyth Technical Community College will not make any reimbursements for text messages received from TechAlerts.
  • During the sign-up process a Validation number will be sent to your mobile device. Depending on your phone carrier's network conditions, this validation message may take some time to reach your device. If you do not receive a validation message, you should login using the account ID you created and re-validate your device.

Note: If you have already registered with the TechAlerts system, you do not need to fill out the sign-up information again.
