Setting Up Text Alerts


How do I set up text alerts from WKU?


 Note: There are two categories of text alerts: University Communication and Emergency Text Messages. University Communication provides information about important events, your application status, deadlines, and other reminders. Emergency Text Messages provide alerts about campus emergencies such as crime and weather.

WKUID numbers are not required for affiliates to enroll in emergency alerts, however the employee's name, mobile phone number, mobile carrier, and an email address are needed for each enrollment.
