1. Fill in your contact information on the Registration mask
2. Once you have created your account, you must VERIFY YOUR CELL PHONE NUMBER. Follow the prompts on the Account mask. You'll be sent an email with a PIN number that needs to be entered on the mask.Text messages are the fastest way to send out campus emergency messages.
3. Next step is not obvious. ADD YOURSELF TO A GROUP under the GROUPS tab at the top of your Account page. The groups are the places where you spend your time. It's how WVM-Alert knows where you are. Choices are West Valley College, Mission College or you may pick both. Pick the "Actions" button then on the next page scroll down to the TINY LITTLE "JOIN" and click it. If you do not add yourself to a group, you will not receive messages!
Review the Emergency Guidelines at www.wvm.edu/emergency so that you know what to do when you receive an emergency message.
