MSJC-Alert Notification and Information System
Mt. San Jacinto College's Emergency Notification System is called MSJC-Alert.
The system is used to communicate vital information to let students, faculty and staff
know when there is an emergency on or around campus, and what they need to
do to be safe.
District personnel will send MSJC-Alert messages only in the event of an urgent
need to communicate to the students, faculty and staff. A periodic check of the
system may be conducted each semester to ensure it is operating properly.
Students: All students are enrolled in MSJC-Alert automatically, using the contact information
provided in your college application, or updated in
EagleAdvisor - Update My MSJC-Alert Emergency Contact Information
If you drop/withdraw all courses, your name will be removed from the system within 1 week.
Faculty and Staff are enrolled automatically in MSJC-Alert.
The MSJC-Alert system includes the following notification components:
SMS/Mobile: Text and/or voice messages sent to mobile devices. Students/employees
must subscribe through the MSJC-Alert system to receive messages. Note: standard
text messaging rates apply.
E-mail: E-mail alerts will be sent to campus e-mail account. Students are automatically
subscribed with their @student.msjc.edu accounts. Students may also be contacted via
email only, as Eagle-Info, with important college news and event information.
Information about campus emergencies will be posted on the MSJC website
Facebook: Alert messages will be posted to the MSJC Facebook account. Be sure to
'like' the Facebook page to get information automatically posted to your facebook page.
While there is no charge to subscribe to MSJC-Alert, your cell phone provider may charge a
fee for the delivery of text messages based on your calling plan. This is an optional service
that will only be used to advise you of potential, developing, or existing critical emergencies.
The phone numbers and email addresses registered in MSJC-Alert will not be published in a
directory or used for any other purpose. It will be used for alerts and for periodic testing
of the MSJC-Alert system.

A message from Dr. Roger Schultz, MSJC Superintendent/President
In an ongoing effort to keep students, faculty and staff safe, Mt. San Jacinto College utilizes a campus emergency notification system so that we can be prepared for situations that we never could have anticipated. We recognize the important role that immediate communication plays in keeping students safe. As part of our comprehensive critical response plan, we have added the Regroup communication service.
The Regroup service allows campus leaders to schedule, send, and track personalized voice messages to students, faculty and staff, via four different modes of communication:
- Voice messages to home phones, work phones, cell phones, and even e-mail addresses
- Text messages to cell phones, PDAs, networked digital signage, and other text-based devices *rates apply
- Text messages to e-mail accounts
- A Facebook message.
“Notifying students immediately is crucial in time-sensitive situations, such as a severe storm or campus closure,” according to President Shultz. “It is essential for students to maintain current contact information with the college. The more means we have to contact individuals, the better our odds are of spreading timely information and updates and keeping everyone safe.”
Contact information included in the MSJC-Alert system will only be used for campus emergency notifications and will not be made available to any other service.
