To register, visit the EACC Homepage (www.eacc.edu) and click on “Information Links”. Under the “Student” section, click on “eaccALERT” and select the “Sign Up” button/link. Then, enter in your EACC username and password. This information will be the same username and password that you use when logging into your EACC e-mail account. For example, eacc\lastname.firstname would be the username; your password will be the one you set when you established your e-mail account. Please remember to enter the domain name [eacc] and a ‘backslash’ before entering in your username. Also, be sure to have your cell phone handy to complete the registration process.
You will be forwarded to a web page that will allow you to create an account within the eaccALERT (e2campus) system. When signing up/subscribing to the service, you must use your EACC e-mail account name (for example, if your e-mail address is “email@example.com”, you must use “smith.john”) as your USERNAME. However, for security purposes, DO NOT use the same password for this account as you use at EACC— the password that you choose for eaccALERT will be stored within a third-party vendor’s system and not within a campus system.
The type of messages you would receive via this text messaging delivery service include ONLY:
- Emergency Alerts – to communicate emergency situations on campus.
- Campus Closings – to communicate an unscheduled College closing, or a delay or cancellation of classes due to, for instance, inclement weather.
In the ‘Opt-out By’ field, select the date that you wish to no longer receive the eaccALERT messages. If you anticipate that you will graduate in the Fall semester of 2012, for example, select an opt-out date of December 31, 2012. You will be able to change this date in the future by logging in to your eaccALERT account.
