A cell number is required in order to send a short message service (SMS) text messages in the event of an emergency. This number will not appear in the online directory unless you specify it as your preferred number. Although students can register international phone numbers, we encourage you to obtain and list a local US cell phone number to ensure speedy delivery of DukeALERT messages.
