Is it possible without CPPM and any external services to have a user profile or other configuration on a particular 802.1x SSID to have an initial page load kind of informative so we can provide critical news?

The issue with that you are doing a Layer 2 authentication (no ip address) and in order to get that page you will need an IP address first .

You could do this by putting the users in a captive portal role after they authenticate. Then put an "accept" or "done" button at the bottom of the page which will put them into their final access role without a captive portal.
The downside of this is that until they click that button, all they can access is that splash page (or whatever else you allow) and this process will happen every time they reconnect.

Try to put a different website in the welcome page URL.
I used one of the bundled captive portal options from the controller then got the other URL working. I guess I gave up too quickly. Now I'm trying to determine if I have the access to the redirected URL to create the embedded login form or to add the accept button. It may be all for not. I'd hate to have users stuck in the splash screen.

I'm trying to get this same situation to work for me. I'm getting "This webpage has a redirect loop" in Chrome? How did you get this work for you?
I'll have to look for my notes. I think ultimately was to define the l3 captive portal settings to put to the redirect url and then assign the captive portal to the user-role. I never finished the project since the inquiry request was recinded from the source.

Pretty old post but I just ran across this real quick with a test web login I'm doing in ClearPass. My issue was the ACL assigned to the user role to allow access to ClearPass didn't have the new test URL I had just setup. Once I made sure the ACL allowed the proper traffic it connected without issue.
