In an effort to keep our students safe and informed in emergency situations, Eastern
Iowa Community Colleges have added a new system to help alert students, faculty and
staff of school closings and other emergencies.
EICCAlert is a free service* to send text and voice messages and email notifications to students, staff and parents about campus closing.
*EICCAlert does not charge subscribers to send or receive SMS messages. Standard or other messaging charges apply depending upon your wireless carrier plan and subscription details. Once registered, you can opt out of SMS messages at any time by texting STOP to 67283 or 226787.
