Emergency Alert & Closing Procedures


You can receive important and urgent “alert” messages from St. Louis Community College through the STLCCAlert Twitter account.

If you have a Twitter account just follow @STLCCAlert using your favorite Twitter application. You will receive STLCCAlert tweets in your Twitter feed just as you receive other tweets from those whom you follow.

If you don't have a Twitter account, you can still receive STLCCAlert messages and notifications via text to your mobile phone using the "Fast Follow" feature. It’s easy to sign up – simply text “Follow STLCCAlert” to 40404 from your mobile phone. 

Please note that you may get several messages when you first sign up that are not from the College. To discontinue receiving text messages that are not from STLCCAlert, simply reply to the text message with the words"SET DISCOVER OFF" (without quotes). After that you will only get messages sent out by the school. Your mobile plan’s text message rates will apply.

Twitter users may want to use the Fast Follow method so they receive STLCCAlert messages via text as well as in their Twitter feed.

St. Louis Community College will remain open except under very severe weather conditions. Official announcements will be broadcast on KMOX-AM (1120) Radio, and television Channels 2, 4 and 5.
