Emergency Notification Sign-up

As part of a comprehensive effort to inform our community of any emergencies that might arise on campus, Midwestern Career College offers an emergency text messaging service.

All students can now opt in to the Midwestern Career College emergency text-messaging system, which enables a limited number of campus administrators to send urgent text messages to subscribers’ cell phones in the event of an emergency.

MCC Public Safety will use the system at their discretion if there is an imminent threat to the safety and security of the campus community or to announce a weather-related university closing. For example, text messages would strongly direct you to take immediate action to avoid injury from a natural disaster; tornado, blizzard, or chemical spill. In the event of an active shooting that targets a person without provocation on or around campus, an emergency text message would be sent to the entire campus community. Alerts regarding a criminal act off campus would not be subject to an emergency text message, however, a timely warning as described by the Jeanne Clery Act may be distributed over various Campus Safety communications platforms.

In an emergency, accurate and up-to-date information may be critical to your safety and security. We will use this emergency text message system only when necessary.

The College will test the system occasionally to determine if it is working properly, but you will not receive non-emergency messages. MCC will not sell your information. The user is responsible for any charges from their phone carrier.
