Providing a safe and secure environment for our students, faculty, staff, and community is a top priority at San Jacinto College. San Jacinto College has partnered with Blackboard Connect to create SJC ALERTME, which will contact members of the College community through email, voice, and text messages in the event of an emergency situation.
SJC ALERTME provides San Jacinto College with another communication tool to keep students, faculty, staff, and the community informed during threatening situations and weather-related closings. In order to receive email, voice, and text messages, you must provide your current, up-to-date, personal contact information. San Jacinto College current students, faculty, and staff should do this through SOS. Members of the San Jacinto College community who wish to receive SJC ALERTME messages should sign up via the link below.
SJC ALERTME will be activated when the College determines a serious threat exists and the College community must take immediate action to remain safe and secure. The system will also be used to announce an unscheduled College and / or campus closing, or cancellation of classes due to situations such as severe weather.
Email is the official form of communication with San Jacinto College students, faculty, staff, and community. All SJC ALERTME alerts will be sent via email to students' San Jacinto College email account, as well as any other email provided. When a voice message is sent, SJC ALERTME will call each phone number that you provide regardless of whether or not the call is answered. Text messages will only be sent once.
There is no cost to sign up for this notification service. However, when the system sends a voice or text message to your personal phone, you are responsible for any charges from your phone service provider associated with receiving voice or text messages.
In addition to SJC ALERTME, the College will continue to use its well-established communications methods including:
- The San Jacinto College website
- The San Jacinto College emergency information line at: 1-888-845-5288
- Official San Jacinto College Facebook and Twitter sites
- Local media
The vendor for SJC AlertMe is Blackboard Connect. This is also the method used to distribute student emails regarding campus happenings, news, and events. At this time, we are unfortunately not able to provide a way for students to opt out of these types of emails. We are working to find a solution to this. Thank you for your patience.
