The University of West Alabama utilizes a state-of-the-art emergency notification system called SchoolCast. This system will allow you to receive instant notification should an emergency occur on our campus. You can receive alerts via email, text messaging, land-line and/or cell phone. This system is voluntary, although we strongly encourage everyone to sign up so that you can be notified in case of emergency. Standard charges for incoming calls and text messages apply (Please check with your provider if you have questions concerning those charges).
During the first two weeks of each term, an email will be sent to your TigerNet email account with your login information.
To log into your SchoolCast Dashboard, please go to https://www.myschoolcast.com.
The first time you visit SchoolCast, you will be asked to change your password (you may also change your username).
To add a new contact phone number, simply select the "Contact Type" that you are adding, type in the phone number, add an optional comment, and check if you want this number used in an emergency situation only. Once you have checked your information for accuracy, click the "Add" button. You can add as many numbers as you'd like (home phone, cell phone, parent's phone, etc.). Once you have added all of your information, your signup to SchoolCast is complete! If any of your information changes, remember to log into your SchoolCast Dashboard and update your information.
If you have any questions or problems, please reply to this message or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your participation and we look forward to being of service to you with an increased emphasis on timely and helpful communication.
