alertYC is a text message / email notification system used to provide information and instructions to students, faculty, and staff in the event of an incident or emergency on-campus, including campus closures or late starts/early releases.
When you register for this service, you have full control to decide what you want to be notified of, how you wish to be notified, and for how long you wish to receive notifications.
You can modify your account settings and preferences 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and can opt-out at any time.
Sure - you can opt to receive an email notification instead of a text message.
No, we will only send alerts when the College determines that a campus should close early or that classes should start late (typically due to inclement weather). We'll also send out alerts should there be an unsafe situation on one of our campuses (for example, a gas leak in a building, a nearby police chase, fire, severe smoke, etc.).
You may be prompted to enter a username and password - this is the same username and password you use to login to computers on-campus or to access the myYC portal.

to confirm proper system operation.
