Emergency Alerts

DCCCD Emergency Alerts is an email, text-message and phone system that alerts you when icy weather or utility outages cancel classes or in the event of 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 automatically to the email address we have on file. However, if your email address has changed since you registered, be sure to update your address to ensure you get emergency alerts. 

Want Text or Voice Alerts Also? Update Your Options 

  • Do you want to be alerted by text or phone call?
  • Do you want to change your emergency alerts email address?

Find out how on our Updating Your Emergency Alerts Information page.

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

You Can Opt Out

If you don’t want to receive emergency alerts, you can opt out. When you opt out, you no longer will 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.
