What is WVWC Alert?
Wesleyan can now send a text message to your cell phone in the event of a campus emergency. Once you sign up for the service, powered by e2Campus, we will be able to text your cell phone with specific information about any emergency situation. We encourage all students, faculty and staff to sign up for this important service.
Please note: Depending on your personal cell phone plan, there may be a nominal fee from your carrier to receive text messages, but there is no charge to sign up for the service.
How do I get started?
If you have already signed up for WVWC Alert, click on the Manage Account link below. If you have not signed up, you need to create an account on WVWC Alert. To do this click on the Sign Up Now link below. You will be prompted for your Wesleyan username and password. Your username is the first part of your e-mail address (everything on the left side of the @). So if your e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org, then your username would be smith_aa. Your password is the same password as you enter for the access to your e-mail, Blackboard or the Wesleyan network.
Once you have entered your username and password, you will be taken to a page where you will create your WVWC Alert account.
Your username will be the same as your Wesleyan username. You should also see your first and last name. There will be a place for you to enter a password. You are creating a new password for your WVWC Alert account. It can be the same or different from your WVWC password. It is up to you.
You will see several groups that you can choose from.
Please choose all groups that apply to you.
Next enter your cell phone number and carrier.
The number should include area code and contain only the numbers.
Once all of this information is entered click on Create Account. You will see a page on your browser, asking for a validation code.
This validation code will be sent to your cell phone via a text message. Enter the code received to complete the signup process.
Once your account is created you can log into your account and add an e-mail address to your account. This will enable you to receive both a text message and an e-mail message concerning any emergency situation.
