Emergency Text Messaging

GRCC offers a text message service to notify students and employees in emergency situations and other important notifications. Now you can be notified any time, anywhere when GRCC is closed or other critical announcements via your mobile phone. Imagine being able to save a trip down to campus because you received notification in time!

Here are some examples of messages that you may receive:

  • Emergency on Campus: Please Evacuate
  • Classes Cancelled Due to Inclement Weather
  • Emergency on Campus: Lock Down Classroom

This service is optional. You may opt-in or opt-out at any time. You will not be spammed, and you will only receive information pertaining to crisis, campus closings, or other critical service announcements. The service is free, though charges from your mobile phone service carrier may apply where applicable.
