Sign up for the text message alert system


November 16, 2007

ASU has launched a new text message alert system. The text message system is an opt-in service in which students, faculty and staff can choose to receive a text from ASU in times of an emergency. This is designed to be used only in the case of a major emergency event either on one of the ASU campuses or in the immediate vicinity.


In the case of such an emergency, participants in the system will receive specific safety information or instructions. Because the messages will carry information specific to the campuses, the system is limited to use only by those on or regularly visiting one of the ASU campuses. An ASU- Rite identification and password is needed to sign up. This service is now available for customers of most cell phone providers; please Click here to sign up for ASU's new text message alert system.
