SUNY NY Alert – Sign up or Re-enroll
A new semester means it’s time for your student to sign up or re-enroll in the SUNY NY Alert emergency notification system in order to receive critical messages about severe weather or campus emergencies via e-mail, phone or text messaging. When students log into Bronco Web the first day of the semester, they will need to take a brief survey. If this is their first time signing up for SUNY NY Alert, they will need to give some contact info. If they have signed up last semester, they need to verify that their contact info is still current.
Please visit our Parent and Families webpage and Campus Link e-News which features new issues monthly. For general questions please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions or Quick References websites. Feel free to call the Parent Help Line at (607) 746-4505 for any additional information.
We look forward to seeing your son or daughter in a few weeks. Save travels as they may their way back to campus for the semester.
