Emergency Alerts

DCCCD Emergency Alerts is an email, text-message and phone system that alerts you when icy weather cancels classes or in the event of an emergency.

DCCCD Emergency Alerts lets you know when there is an unscheduled evacuation or closure of a college or DCCCD office because of weather closures, utility outages, police or other types of emergencies.

We send alerts by email to the address you provided to us when you registered for classes. You don’t have to sign up for alerts; they are sent to the email address we have on file for all students of the colleges of DCCCD. So, to make sure you receive emergency alerts, update your email address if it has changed since you registered. 

Note: Updating your emergency alerts email address does not update the email address on file in your student record. You can update your student record email address online or through your college registrar’s office.

It’s easy to update your emergency alerts email address — or to request that, in addition to email, you also be alerted by phone call or text message or both. Find out more about what emergency alerts look like.

You Can Opt Out

If you don’t want to receive emergency alerts, you can let us know by opting out. When you opt out, you are removed from the list of students who receive emergency alerts. To opt out, go to the same DCCCD Emergency Alerts page on eConnect that you use to update your email address. (You must renew the opt-out option in the fall at the start of each academic year.)

There is no charge to receive emergency alerts. However, standard text message charges from your cellphone provider will apply.

So get started. Take these easy steps to update your information or opt out.
