UIC Alert

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Students, IT

Overview 

UIC Alert is an optional free service that allows UIC officials to send text messages to your mobile phone or any text message capable device in the case of a campus emergency.

Features 

Once per year, you will receive a request to confirm that you still use the mobile phone number(s) you subscribed with to UIC Alert. Unconfirmed numbers will not receive emergency notifications.

Privacy

Your information will be stored securely and will only be used under emergency circumstances or during a system-wide test of UIC Alert. Your mobile phone number will be kept private and not shared with anyone. Mobile phone numbers or wireless email addresses can be added or removed at any time.

Requirements 

UIC NetID and common password are required to subscribe or remove mobile phone numbers from UIC Alert.

Cost 

There is no charge for this service. However, your mobile service provider and plan may charge you for receiving text messages, so consult your provider for details. While UIC Alert will normally only be used in the event of an emergency, it may be tested once a semester to make sure it works correctly. You will also receive a text message when you sign up for the service.
