Our top priority is your safety and security.
San Jacinto College uses SJC AlertMe to distribute emergency notifications via email, voice, text messages, app push notifications, desktop and screen takeovers, digital signage, and tickers.
SJC AlertMe was created in partnership with Rave Mobile and Alertus so you can receive important notifications during College or campus emergencies. SJC AlertMe also integrates with the National Weather Service to provide severe weather updates that may impact your safety and/or College operations.
