The Campus Alert system is an emergency notification tool for South Dakota’s public universities and special schools. This system notifies students, staff, and faculty of any emergencies that occur on or near campus locations. Emergencies may include, but not be limited to, weather alerts, school closings, fire, or criminal activity.
All students are automatically a part of this system through their campus-assigned email address. An email is sent to the campus-assigned email account with information about how to register for the alert system. During registration, students may opt to register their personal telephone numbers, personal e-mail addresses, or other personal electronic devices to receive these Campus Alerts.

All staff and faculty are also automatically included in this alert system with their campus-assigned email address. Staff and faculty are required to register and add any campus-provided phone numbers (desk, cell). Inclusion of personal contact information such as home telephone or personal cell phone is encouraged but not required.
