Register for Alerts
All students, faculty and staff should register to receive text messages
During an emergency, the University may send a text message to your mobile phone.
Every incident is unique; therefore, different communication media will be activated based on their reach, effectiveness, and location. Text messages will only be used if a situation exists that poses an immediate risk to life and safety and requires persons to change their behavior (i.e. seek shelter, evacuate, etc.).
To sign up to receive texts:
- Go to my.sc.edu/emergency and login. You will be presented with a series of screens to update your information.
- Do not skip these messages.
- Complete all applicable fields and ensure your information is correct.
For questions about entering your information on VIP, please contact the UTS Help Desk at (803) 777-1800, M-F, 8a – 6p.
*Please note that the University will only send text messages in the event of a true emergency. For other safety-related information, monitor this site and follow Carolina Alert on Facebook and Twitter.
