CougarAlert Instructions for Credit Students and Employees
Instructions

Collin College employees and students in for-credit classes are partially subscribed automatically, but must log into CougarWeb to add SMS/text and update other preferences.

To access and update your record:

  1. Log into CougarWeb using your standard username and password.

  2. On your home tab, look for the "Personal Information" channel in the lower right corner, and click on "Update CougarAlert Contact Information".




  3. Fill in the fields of the form and click "Submit".  You can include up to nine contact numbers or addresses - three text, three voice/phone and three e-mail.  CougarAlert automatically loads only the college-issued e-mail address and primary phone number listed in Banner for each employee and credit student.  You can change any contact of the nine EXCEPT for your college-issued e-mail address.

  4. Any time your numbers or contact change in the future, simply log into CougarWeb and update your CougarAlert preferences here.

CougarAlert is a free service but standard text messaging rates may apply should you subscribe by SMS/text.
