Missouri State Alert is the University's mass notification system, which uses a variety of methods to contact students, faculty and staff in the event of an emergency or school closing.

When subscribing, you'll be able to select multiple contact methods, from text messages and emails to phone calls and pager messages. The University will send notifications to the contact methods in the order that allows for the quickest delivery.

The system will not be used for advertisements, marketing messages, or to communicate campus or community events.
