What is the Owens Alert System?

The Owens Alert System is designed to keep our students, employees and visitors safe and informed. Program enrollees will automatically be able to receive notices by phone, email, and text message when:

  • One of your classes is canceled.
  • The College or your individual campus is closed because of inclement weather.
  • Campus emergencies.

Once your contact information is set-up, it is your responsibility to maintain correct contact information in the Owens Alert Notifications Portal to continue to receive Owens Alert Emergency and Outreach (class cancelation) notifications.

All students should review and update their contact information, alerts, and outreach subscriptions in the portal (as needed) every semester when they register for classes. 

Employees will need to review and keep their information up to date.

Visitors, community members and alumni can request to be added to the list as well by completing the Owens Alert System Sign Up form. For assistance, contact the Help Desk at (567) 661-7120 or

You can update information, unsubscribe, or re-subscribe anytime in the Owens Alert Notifications Portal.

Student records will not be updated with this information. If you would like to update your official College records, log into Ozone and select View/Update Personal Information on the Student Personal Information card or contact Student Financial Services at:
