Emergency Closings and Notifications


Providing a safe and secure environment for our students, faculty, staff, and community is a top priority at San Jacinto College. SJC’s “AlertMe,” the College's mass notification system, will contact members of the College community through various means, which include but are not limited to email, voice, text messages, mobile app push notifications, and desktop screen messages in the event of an emergency.

Email is the official form of communication with San Jacinto College students, faculty, staff, and community. All SJC AlertMe messages will be sent via email to students' and employees' San Jacinto College email account. The College may also activate text and voice messages, as well as mobile app push notifications. Users incur no cost to sign up for this notification service. However, users are responsible for any data charges from phone service providers associated with receiving messages. To receive voice and text messages, users must provide their current personal contact information to the College. Current San Jacinto College 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 online at sanjac.edu/alert-me (https://www.sanjac.edu/alert-me/).

SJC AlertMe typically will be activated when the College determines that a threat exists or is imminent and the College community must take immediate action to remain safe and secure. During such incidents, SJC AlertMe will be the mechanism utilized to send out updates and revised instructions as needed and notifications when the situation has resolved. 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.
