Emergency Contact Information

Students are required to keep all of their personal information up-to-date. Please keep this information current, as this information would be used to contact your family in the event of a health or safety emergency if you are unable to do so.


If you have been hospitalized as a result of an accident or serious illness. Please contact our office at 906-487-2212 or email us so that we can notify instructors and coordinate other University resources.

Safety First Alert

Safety First Alert is the campus emergency notification system used for sending emergency and time-sensitive notifications via voice, email, and text message. Students are required annually to either update their information or opt out of the Safety First Alert service. We encourage you to participate.
