StarAlert Emergency Notification System

In the interest of promoting the safety of our campus community, Pine Technical & Community College maintains an emergency notification system, Star Alert, for students, faculty and staff.

How Does it Work

All students enrolled in one or more credit-based courses at the main Pine Technical and Community College campus will receive emergency messages through their official college email addresses.

If you have signed up to receive text messages from PTCC through the eServices (the grades and registration portal), the cell phone number you will also receive text messages through the StarAlert system.

We recommend that you log into the StarAlert system to verify your information. You may also add additional mobile phone numbers, voice phone numbers, or personal email addresses.

Logging in is quick and easy. You can add your own personal cell phone numbers and email addresses to ensure you get the message. The process also can be reversed if the service is no longer desired.

The first time you access the system, select Sign Me Up and log in using your first name and last name and your email address. Your identification code will be your StarID.

Participants must be able to receive text or e-mail messages on their cell phones. Information submitted through the registration process will only be used for the StarAlert system.

We also recommend all students sign up to receive text messages through eServices. You can learn how to sign up for text message communications here: How to enroll in text message notification.
