Faculty & Staff
Register & Stay Informed!
With JeffALERT the University can send simultaneous alerts in minutes through text messaging, voicemail and email to numerous devices, such as cellular phones, landline phones, fax machines and PDAs. But the system is only as good as the contact information you provide to us. We urge you to register/update your celliular phone numbers, office numbers and landlines so that security officials can effectively notify you during emergency situations.
Since the JeffALERT system is used to notify you in an emergency situation, we strongly recommend that you provide contact information for YOU, the subscriber. Provide the contact numbers you are most likely to check/answer should a message be sent to you… most likely, while you are on campus.
JeffALERT will use the information you provide in Banner Web for cellular phones and land lines. Information provided in Banner Web updates in JeffALERT every 24 hours. The system is set up to automatically access your Jefferson e-mail account. You do not need to take any action for this.
Log in to Banner Web.
Select the "Personal Information" link and choose the JeffALERT icon at the top of the page.
You will be asked to update your local and permanent phone numbers as well as your cellular phone number.

All paid university faculty and staff and students with active general student records in the Banner Web system (for the current to upcoming term) are eligible to receive JeffALERT notifications.
JeffALERT will use information you include in our PeopleSoft system. It is therefore important to make sure all your information is up to date. Please provide a CELLULAR PHONE number (if you have one) and populate the CAMPUS phone number in PeopleSoft with the complete office number you wish to use for emergency communications. Information provided in PeopleSoft updates in JeffALERT every 24 hours. The system is set up to automatically access your Jefferson e-mail account. You do not need to take any action for this.
