What are TechAlerts?

Alerts will notify you in the event of campus closings, emergency situations, campus events, or important reminders. Depending on the urgency of the notification, alerts may be sent out to any text-capable device such as a mobile phone or an email address that you have registered with the system. In addition, these alerts may be shared on social media (Facebook, Twitter) and the Forsyth Tech website.
