PTC Mobile SMS Terms of Service
Text messaging, also known as SMS, is one of the methods PTC uses to communicate with prospective and existing students. Authorized college officials can relay information about admissions and academic requirements or deadlines, cancellations, closures, registration information, financial aid, and other matters that are time sensitive and necessary for student success at PTC. Additionally, individual faculty, staff, coaches, advisors, or other PTC employees may participate in text messaging with students or groups for college-related communication.
Your opt-in will be collected via various forms throughout the admissions process.
You can cancel the SMS service at any time. Just text STOP. After you send the SMS message “STOP” to us, we will send you an SMS message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. After this, you will no longer receive SMS messages from the PTC messaging service. If you want to join again, just sign up as you did the first time, or reply START to the last message you received, and we will start sending SMS messages to you again.
If you are experiencing issues with the messaging program you can reply with the keyword HELP for more assistance.
No purchase is required to receive text messages from PTC, and we do not charge to receive them. However, standard message and data rates may apply for any messages sent to you from us and to us from you. Please note that cell phone carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. You can expect to receive 5 messages per week or less. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, it is best to contact your wireless provider.
