My USC Salkehatchie

Carolina Alert

During an emergency, USC Salkehatchie may send you a text message. Every incident is unique; therefore, different communication media will be activated based on their reach, effectiveness and location. Text messages will only be used if a situation exists that poses an immediate risk to life and safety and requires persons to change their behavior (i.e. seek shelter, evacuate, etc.).

To sign up to receive texts:

  • Go to and login. You will be presented with a series of screens to update your information.
  • Do not skip these messages.
  • Complete all applicable fields and ensure your information is correct.

If you need help with this process, please contact the IT Help Desk.
