Star Alert

Star Alert is St. Cloud State's emergency notification system that allows students and employees to receive text messages and email in the event of campus-related emergencies.

  • Enrolled students are automatically added to Star Alert via the cell phone number on file with the University if one has been provided. All student university email addresses also are included in Star Alert and will receive alerts. Students may opt out of receiving text messages by updating your information.
  • Faculty and staff must opt in to receive emergency text notifications through Star Alert to their mobile devices. All university email addresses for faculty and staff are included in Star Alert and will receive alerts.

You can add multiple personal email addresses and additional cell phone numbers to receive Star Alerts through your account. These may be additional ways to best reach you or significant others you may want to be aware.

In the event of a real emergency, Star Alert messages will briefly note the nature of the emergency, what action, if any, you are to take, and where to find additional information. Star Alert also may be used to let you know if campus is closed or if classes are delayed or cancelled. In these instances, also refer to for the latest updates.
