WCU ALERT sends direct text messages of WCU announcements including on-campus emergencies, inclement weather cancellations, delay openings, university closings and periodic test messages.
WCU ALERT (powered by Omnilert) is a free service to students, faculty, and staff (standard text messaging rates may apply). Parents/Guardians may receive WCU Alert messages after being added to an existing student WCU Alert account.
