Missing Out on Snow Closing Announcements? Update Your Emergency Contact Information

SUNY Orange students,

The College is requesting that students update/enter your emergency contact information so that SUNY Orange can notify you in case of an emergency or other crisis.

When the need arises, the College communicates to students and employees in a variety of ways during an emergency. We use New York Alert to simultaneously send texts, emails, phone calls (land lines and mobile phones), and FAXes. In addition to New York Alert, the College posts information on the SUNY Orange web site ( and social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter).

We also display messages within the MyAlerts portlet on MySUNYOrange and distribute emails to your account, as well as utilizing the College switchboard during non-business hours.

The College uses the New York Alert text interface, as well as the other communications methods named above, to announce weather delays and closings.

In order to update your emergency contact information for the New York Alert system in Self Service Banner, you should locate your Personal Information tab and look for the heading Emergency Alert Contact Information (NY-ALERT).

If you haven't already entered emergency contact information, you should do so using this link:

Thank you in advance.
