Howard College Alert System

  • Hits: 37239

Responding to the safety concerns of the world around us and striving to provide the most safe and secure environment for our students, faculty and staff, Howard College has implemented a notification system called HC Alert.

HC Alert is a safety management tool implemented by Howard College to promote the timely notification of critical safety and/or crisis information to HC students, faculty and staff.  When utilized, recipients will receive alert text messages on their registered cell phones.  These messages will provide information to subscribers regarding any safety and/or crisis issues relating to Howard College.

The HC Alert system only works with voice cell phones.  Our SWCID students, faculty and staff that do not use voice cell phones will need to manually sign up for email notification through Jennifer Key in the Provost’s office on the SWICD campus.

Once you are registered, your name and cell phone number will remain in the system unless you request removal.  In order to remove your name and cell phone number from the message alert system, you will need to contact Howard College Computer Services at 432-264-5055.

All Howard College students, faculty and staff with active voice cell phones are invited to sign up for HC Alert through the Campus Connect system using the icon shown below.

HC Alert is a safety tool used to promote timely notification of critical information to students, faculty and staff. As HC Alert is activated, Howard College sends an alert message using this system to your cell phone carrier. Your cell phone carrier then provides the mechanism to get the message to you. Once the message leaves the Howard College network we no longer have any control over how long it takes the message to reach you. Delivery times can range from a minute or less to several hours. By clicking on the "Send Test Message and Store Alert Information" button you are acknowledging that you understand this disclaimer and choose to proceed with enrollment in the HC Alert system, and you waive and release any right and claims against Howard College, it's sponsors, organizers, supervisors, and employees for damages and/or injuries which may be sustained while participating in the program.

To be a leader in education…for learning, for earning, for life!


As one unified district, Howard College builds communities through quality, innovative education for lifelong learning.

Howard College primarily serves the communities of its taxing district of Howard County and the twelve other counties in its service area (Coke, Kimble, Martin, Concho, Menard, Dawson, Schleicher, Glasscock, Sterling, Irion, Sutton, Tom Green) as well as the deaf and hard-of-hearing community in its state-legislated responsibility for the SouthWest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf.  Students who choose to attend the college district from places outside of the taxing district and service area are integrated into the college community.  Howard College offers career technical/workforce and academic courses for certificates and associate degrees, continuing education, remedial and compensatory education consistent with open-admission policies.  Appropriate student services are also provided.  Howard College strives to enhance economic, community, cultural, and personal development across the service area through appropriate partnerships and services in meeting its public service mission.  As a community college, research is not included in the mission of Howard College.  However, exploration of innovative teaching and student development practices to enhance learning is supported and expected.


An institution working together to:
  • Focus on those we serve;
  • Provide quality innovative instruction and services leading to successful outcomes;
  • Utilize effective and efficient processes, policies and procedures;
  • Build a culture of personal and institutional integrity and accountability;
  • Foster an environment of high academic standards, exceptional performance and service by all;
  • Value the individual employee.


Howard College ... for Learning, for Earning, for Life!
