UCCSAlerts – Update and Campus-wide Test Scheduled

UPDATE 10/27/14:

A follow-up email was sent to faculty and staff concerning their method for accessing the UCCSAlerts page to confirm or update their contact information.  Given the more recent communication, the campus-wide test of the emergency notification system has been postponed until Wednesday, October 29th at 12:05pm.


Posted 10/26/14:

At approximately 1:30pm on Sunday, October 26th, all UCCS students, staff, and faculty should have received an email notification informing them of the change from our previous emergency notification system to an updated system known as UCCSAlerts.  All users should take a moment to confirm their contact information via the instructions in the email so as to ensure their information is up to date and accurate.  For more information on accessing your UCCSAlerts account, or to learn more about the new system, please visit the FAQs page.

In order to test the new system under “real” workload, we have scheduled a test for Monday, October 27th at 12:05pm.  The test message will be sent to all registered UCCS.edu email addresses, as well as those accounts which have registered to receive text alerts.  Please take advantage of our testing by ensuring your registration information is complete and accurate ahead of the test.
