AlertU - Be the First to Know!

Santa Ana College (SAC) has adopted AlertU, an emergency text messaging platform, to help communicate critical information to students, faculty, staff, and interested individual’s mobile devices instantly. The new system is part of a multi-tier approach designed to provide vital information quickly.

There are three ways to signup to receive AlertU emergency messages:

  • Enter your 10-digit mobile phone number in the widget to the right and click on the Subscribe button.
  • Text SAC to 253788 (ALERTU). When you receive the confirmation text message from AlertU, just reply to the message by typing "Y" and you'll be enrolled to receive emergency messages from SAC.
  • Go to, enter your 10-digit mobile phone number, and click on the Submit button. 

For help or to opt-out of AlertU service:

Neither AlertU nor SAC will spam or give your information to a third party. Your standard text message rates apply for this opt-in program.

Emergencies strike without warning and college and district officials want you to receive emergency alert notifications immediately. This web-based tool allows us to speed such notifications to your mobile device anywhere. Please enroll today.

For more information, please visit the AlertU Frequently Asked Questions page or contact Al Chin, district director of safety and security, by email or by calling (714) 480-7333.
