Eagle Alert Enrollment

Service Description

Sign up for Eagle Alert - the campus emergency notification system


Services Offered

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 sign up to receive 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.

Everyone with a Southern Miss e-mail address (@eagles.usm.edu and @usm.edu) receives emergency alerts to their university e-mail address. To also receive text and voice message alerts, students, faculty and staff are asked to provide phone contact information. Participation in this system is not mandatory, but enrollment is strongly encouraged.

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



Southern Miss employees, students, departments, organizations or affiliates are eligible.
