Star Alert emergency notification

Star Alert is M State's emergency and weather-related messaging system. 


If you are an M State student, you are automatically enrolled in the Star Alert system with the cell phone number and/or email address you provided when you enrolled. To update this information, you must register and activate your account directly with Blackboard Connect. Registering with Blackboard will also allow you to choose whether you would like to receive your notifications via text, email or phone.
