If there are any questions, please refer to the FAQs below. If you still have questions regarding the emergency notification system, please contact the Information Technology Department at 323.265.8700.


How to get Notified

Current Semester Students

When you applied to the college, there is a mobile number textbox that you should have filled out, that number will be used to send emergency notification to. 

To update your number, you will need to access your Student SIS system and click on profile. In profile, you will have a @Contact hyperlink that will click.  In that page you can update your mobile number there. That number will take 24-48 hours to update into the Blackboard System. 
 
Unforuntately, we only add current ELAC students into our Emergency Notification System. You can register with our public notification system to receive text messages.
