Out of respect for your privacy, Southern will only send messages in the following circumstances: notification of an immediate campus life safety emergency; initial notification of campus' closed status in unsafe weather conditions; administration of system tests; and notification of need to renew your text message registration.
If you change cell phone carriers, you should re-register your new phone, even if your phone number remains the same. If you change your phone number, you will also need to update your number in your text messaging alert account. You can always access your account by visiting www.southern.edu/notify or visiting the Current Students page and selecting Text Message Alerts.
While the university makes every effort to communicate via text and other methods in a time of emergency, be aware that there may be certain circumstances in which electronic communication cannot be relied upon.
