eAlert

The eAlert emergency notification system is coming soon to UW-Washington County!  eAlert will automatically be sent to campus email addresses. Anyone with a cell number in PRISM will also receive a text. To opt out, the cell number must be removed in PRISM and changed to "home" or "other". The eAlert text service is free, but you will be responsible for normal short messaging service (SMS) charges from your cellular provider will apply. 

If you want to receive eAlerts via text message, please check your personal information in PRISM and make sure your correct cell phone is entered and that it is indicated as a cellular phone. 

We expect to begin a test of the new system by January 18. eAlerts will be used to notify you of campus closings and emergency situations.
