Chico State Alerts

While Student, Faculty, and Staff Chico State email are automatically included in the alert system, the University encourages you to add multiple contact points to ensure you are notified. A good example of an additional contact point is a mobile phone to receive text messages and/or a personal email.  You can add your contact points by clicking the “Sign up for Alerts” button on the left of the page or below. 

Students, the emergency notification information you provide during registration is used by the alert system. It is recommended you verify your information periodically, for example, at the beginning of each semester.

Faculty and staff must sign up for additional contact points. If you have not yet provided emergency contact information or need to update your phone number or email, please use the sign up button below. Your contact information is kept confidential.

The system will contact you in three ways, based on the information you provide:
  • Call to home, office, or mobile phone number. Add (530)898-5999 to your contacts. 
  • Text messages (SMS) to mobile device
  • E-mails to an address you specify

Chico State Alerts are sent only for very serious incidents and dangerous situations that would jeopardize the health and safety of the campus community.

Local/Regional Emergency Notifications
