Academic Advising

RVCC ALERTS is River Valley Community College's emergency notification system that will help ensure rapid and reliable mass communication to students, faculty, and staff. The RVCC ALERT system is designed to communicate with cell phones (text and voice messages), landlines and email systems, should a weather closure/delay, emergency situation or crisis occur on the RVCC campus or academic center.

RVCC students are automatically registered to receive alerts via college email, but will need to register (opt-in) and provide their emergency contact information to receive alerts via phone and/or text messaging or personal email. To register, you need to access the Secure Area of the Student Information System (SIS). On the home page, select Personal Information, then select the RVCC Alerts icon.

If you have questions about RVCC Alerts, please contact the Campus Safety Office at (603) 542-7744, ext. 5420.

Check with your phone plan for potential charges associated with text messaging. Costs associated with text messaging are dependent on the phone plan you carry. Some phone plans apply nominal charges for text messages. If you choose to receive ALERTS by text message, be aware that RVCC will not reimburse for these messages.
