WCU ALERT (powered by Omnilert) sends direct text messages of WCU announcements including on-campus emergencies, inclement weather cancellations, delay openings, university closings and periodic test messages. It is a free service to students, faculty, and staff (standard text messaging rates may apply). Parents and guardians may receive WCU Alert messages after being added to an existing student WCU Alert account.

WCU ALERT is one of many emergency communication components at West Chester University. In an emergency, West Chester University will communicate key information as quickly and to as many people as possible. Emergency communication components include the WCU Homepage (primary source), mass emails, digital signage, text messages via WCU Alert, and the external notification system.

Instructions on how to access your account or create an account can be found on the WCU Alert Instructions page.
