NAU Alert

NAU Alert sends text messages in case of an emergency, including weather-related closures. Students can also add an additional phone number, so that a friend or family member can receive these notifications. 

The service is free and voluntary, but students are strongly urged to register. Only very urgent and important messages will be sent via NAU Alert, and the system will not be used to distribute advertising or other unsolicited content.

Students, staff and faculty must be registered to receive alerts. Though the system is free, subscribers may have to pay fees associated with their text messaging service.
