Sign Up for COM's Emergency Notification System: AlertU – text messages to your phone

AlertU will allow Campus Police to broadcast critical information, in real time, to the mobile devices (cell phones, etc.) of all employees and the student body. This is particularly important for those who may be in, or near, a crisis zone.

To sign up, go to AlertU and follow the directions. There is no cost to sign up for this service; however, standard text message rates may apply.
