Encourage Your Student to Sign Up For the Wesleyan Alert System
Is your son or daughter signed up for the Wesleyan Alert System?
The Wesleyan Alert System is Nebraska Wesleyan University’s emergency notification system. In the event of a campus emergency, students will be sent a text message within seconds of an official announcement. This is the quickest way for the university to notify students.
To subscribe to this free service, students need to log in to the Nebraska Wesleyan University website and follow the necessary instructions. If your student has already logged onto the Nebraska Wesleyan University website, then visit the Wesleyan Alert System web page and sign up. The Wesleyan Alert System is used only in the event of an emergency, safety threat or when information needs to be distributed quickly to students. The university uses the Wesleyan Alert System to announce school closing information due to inclement weather.
Students who haven’t already signed up for the alert system are encouraged to do so by the first day of the fall semester. The Wesleyan Alert System will be tested at the start of the school year to assure everyone is signed up correctly.
Students who choose not to subscribe will receive emergency messages via an email, the NWU homepage and through other traditional communication channels.
NWU staff will be available at NSO to assist your students with sign up if they haven't done so already.
This service is limited to NWU faculty, staff and students due to the limited number of accounts available in the Wesleyan Alert System database.
