UNK Alert

"Opt-In" for Text Messaging

The UNKAlert! communication system has been expanded to enable emergency notification delivery by text messaging (SMS). Participation in UNKAlert! texting is voluntary but strongly encouraged.  In life-threatening situations, everyone needs to have the ability to be warned. All costs associated with receiving a text message are the responsibility of the individual receiving the message.

Students may Opt-in for text messages in myBlue by selecting the Phone Type of Campus Alert Text and entering a telephone number. You can opt-out from getting text messages by removing your telephone number from that field.

Employees may opt-in for text messages in Firefly Employee Self Service by the following path:

Personal Information->Address & Emergency Contact->Permanent Address->Edit->Enter telephone number in first blank field->Select Phone Type by finding “Text Messages” at the bottom of the drop down list.


You can opt-out by removing the telephone number from that field.
