On Friday, September 13, IUP will conduct a scheduled test of its Emergency Notification System. That test will include several touchpoints:
IUP has moved to a new system to deliver emergency text messages, and all students, faculty, and staff are
encouraged to verify their contact information before the test on Friday. Updates can be made by visiting
your Personal Info page in
MyIUP. To complete the process, persons should follow the Emergency notification system registration and updates link in the “Personal Information” box.
The new system does not allow for adding an additional person’s contact information to a profile. Parents, family members, and community members who wish to receive emergency messages should sign up for emergency messages by texting “iupalert” to 888777.
In the case of an actual emergency or need for notification, the university will use all, or some, of the modes of communication being tested on Friday.
In most circumstances, the IUP main website will have the most complete, updated, and detailed information available. Please visit the IUP.edu home page for current information following alerts of any nature. Depending on the nature of the emergency or
situation, the entire IUP homepage may be replaced with emergency messaging and instructions.
