SC Alert* is the Springfield College emergency notification system. With it, the College can send emergency notifications straight to your phone.
*Springfield College has contracted the emergency notification system company Rave Mobile Safety to provide SC Alert. The service is free. (Standard text messaging rates may apply.) SC Alert will not be used to distribute advertising or other unsolicited content, nor will it be used to communicate routine notifications; the service is for emergency contact purposes only. All other emergency notifications, including delays or closings due to inclement weather, can be found here.
What is SC Alert?
SC Alert serves as the College-wide emergency notification system for students, faculty, and staff. By signing up for SC Alert, you will receive emergency notifications directly to your phone.

How can I sign up for SC Alert?
As a Springfield College student, faculty, or staff member, you are automatically enrolled in this service. However, we encourage you to frequently log in to the system using your PrideNET user name and password to check and/or update your information. By doing this, we’ll be able to reach you in an emergency situation—wherever you are. Manage your SC Alert account.
Is SC Alert only for students?
No. Faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to enroll, too.
