Opt In for Text Alert Notifications
Students are encouraged to utilize MyGateway to update their personal information and to "opt in" for text alert messaging in the event of an emergency.

Follow these steps to enroll:
- Sign into MyGateway.
- Go to the "Personal Information" channel under the "Student" tab.
- Click on the item "Set Text Message Alert Preferences."
- When clicking on "Set Text Message Alert Preferences," the next screen will allow you to enter your cell phone information, the cellular service provider, the level of messages you wish to receive and the campus or campuses you want to be notified about.
- After entering your information, click on the "Submit" button.
