Eagle Alert

To ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff, The University of Southern Mississippi offers the Eagle Alert emergency notification system.

Students, faculty and staff can update their contact information to ensure they are receiving time-sensitive emergency messages via text and voice messages to cell phones and home phones. Eagle Alert allows the university to better inform the campus community of imminent danger and emergency situations.

While it is strongly recommended that you provide at least one phone number (cell phone is recommended) for Eagle Alert, students, faculty and staff can opt-out of the personal phone and text message portion of the service beginning on August 13, 2013. Although you may opt-out of those portions of the service, participation by campus email is required. You may also opt-in to receive alerts by campus phone.

Eagle Alert is a secure system, and messages will be sent through the system only in an emergency and for periodic testing. It will not be used to send advertising or spam to personal phones.
