Important Message Delivery Notes
A mass notification system for  
  • students
  • faculty & staff
  • Delivering important safety  
    and emergency messages by  

  • voice recording
  • e-mail
  • text message
  •  Please take a minute NOW to establish and maintain your M-Alert connections. 

    M-Alert enables Mercer County Community College administrative and Security personnel to reach participating students, faculty, and staff with time-sensitive announcements via text messaging, phone recording, and e-mail.

    During unforeseen events, critical situations, or emergencies, the college may employ the system to broadcast vital information and provide details on appropriate response. M-Alert helps MCCC provide a safer environment, enhance emergency preparedness, and keep its students and staff better informed.

    Please Note!
    Regarding Your M-Alert Participation

    1.  In order to be included, you must establish an M-Alert account [REGISTER]; and you must maintain your account [LOGIN] with current, correct contact information.

    2.  Contact information that you supply for M-Alert applies to M-Alert ONLY. It has no bearing on the "official" personal information that the college has on record for you as a student or employee. Changes to the latter should be submitted to MCCC Enrollment Services or Human Resources.

    3.  When registering, your USERNAME must be a valid e-mail address -- where a confirmation e-mail will be sent for you to activate your M-Alert account.

    4.  When providing your contact preferences, take advantage of the "Test It Now!" feature to verify the accuracy of the information that you entered and confirm your M-Alert connection(s).

    5.  To discontinue M-Alert participation, you must "opt out."  (See box at right) >>
