Emergency Notification System
Gateway Technical College’s AlertMe emergency notification system will alert all persons with a Gateway Technical College email address and other subscribers with a text message in the event of a dangerous situation occurring at one of the Gateway locations. In addition to the email and text alerts the AlertUs beacons, which are located throughout all of Gateway’s buildings, will sound in the effected building(s). Once the situation no longer presents a threat an “all clear” message will be sent.
All students are enrolled in the AlertMe system at the time of enrollment. If you provide your cell phone information then you will receive text messages as well as email messages when the college issues a warning. All students are encouraged to log in to the AlertMe system at www.gtc.edu/alertme to verify their enrollment if they are uncertain of their current status.
In 1998, the federal government passed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, (Act), formerly and the Student Right to Know Act of 1990. This law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to disclose the reported instances of criminal activity on their campuses, associate properties, adjacent public properties, and student organization properties.

Note: If your cell phone provider charges for text messages received there will likely be a cost associated with this service. Check with your mobile phone provider. If you wish to not participate in the AlertMe text messaging then you will need to log in to the AlertMe system at www.gtc.edu/alertme each semester and discontinue text notices.
