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. 

With SJC AlertMe you can:

  • Receive alerts at up to three emails and three phone numbers (great for letting family members know about emergencies on campus!)
  • Select which campuses you want to receive alerts about
  • Update your default language


Sign Up for Alerts

To receive email, voice, and text messages:

  • Current San Jac students, faculty, and staff: Sign up via the SJC AlertMe tile in SOS
  • Community members: Sign up here
  • In addition, you can download the Rave Mobile Safety Guardian App from your app store and sign up to receive push notifications. Use your San Jacinto College credentials to sign in to the Guardian App and to set up your notification preferences.

When and How You’ll Receive Alerts

The College uses SJC AlertMe:

  • When an emergency happens on campus or nearby and the College community must act immediately to remain safe
  • When situations like severe weather cause unscheduled College/campus closures or class cancellations

Delivery Methods:

  • All SJC AlertMe messages will go to students' and employees' College email accounts.
  • Email is the College’s official communication method with students, faculty, staff, and the community.
  • We may also use text messages*, voice messages*, and mobile app push notifications*.

         *Note: Although this notification service is free, you may be responsible for data charges from your phone service provider for receiving messages.

Additional Channels Used During an Emergency:


SJC AlertMe is operated by Rave Mobile. This system also distributes student emails about campus happenings, news, and events. We don’t currently have an opt-out option for non-emergency emails, but we are working to find a solution to this.
