GC Alert (Emergency Notification System)
Gaston College uses an alert service that notifies the campus community if an emergency situation occurs or is imminent. The service provides important information to your gaston.edu email account and, if you entered your mobile phone information, as a text message to your mobile phone. Because text to a mobile phone is limited in size, the email will often contain additional information.
Anyone from the following groups is automatically enrolled for email notifications. In order to receive phone text alerts, you need to sign-in and enter your mobile phone contact information. Your username is your Gaston College email address. You can add up to three mobile devices and three email addresses from your account. Parents of GC students can be registered under the student account.

Please note that in addition to GC Alert, the College also uses a variety of other notification methods such as Public Address (PA System), website, and College email.
