Summary: How to receive emergency text alerts for urgent campus situations
 
 
How to Sign Up for Text Alerts
 
If you’d like to receive emergency text alerts from A-B Tech about any urgent situations on campus, you can sign up for text alerts in WebAdvisor. There are separate instructions for students and for employees. Remember that standard text messaging rates will apply.
  
How to Stop Receiving Text Alerts
 
To stop receiving text alerts, log in to WebAdvisor, select "Verify/Change My Contact Information," remove the number from "Alerts Phone Number," and click "Submit."
 
If you are receiving text alerts and have never attended A-B Tech, it’s possible a student accidentally put your phone number into their account. In that case, contact our IT Department at (828) 398-7550 or helpdesk@abtech.edu. They can remove your number from our database.
 
If You’re Not Receiving Text Alerts

If you signed up for text alerts but are not receiving them, you should first log in to WebAdvisor to make sure your phone number is correct. Also be sure you’ve selected your phone carrier. If your phone number is correct and you still don’t receive the text alerts, there may be a problem with the text messages being transmitted from A-B Tech through your phone carrier. The process of getting a text message through your phone carrier is complex; sometimes students don’t receive the text alerts, and sometimes students receive multiple text alerts. Anytime you’re concerned about the College being open, you should check our website, Facebook page (facebook.com/abtech.edu), local media outlets, or call us at (828) 398-7900.

Continuing Education students are not currently able to sign up for emergency text alerts. Anytime you’re concerned about the College being open, you should check our website, Facebook page (facebook.com/abtech.edu), local media outlets, or call us at (828) 398-7900.
