At Victoria College, the safety of our students and employees is a top priority. In the case of an emergency or campus closure, VC's Emergency Alert System and VictoriaCollege.edu/Alert will be used to communicate details with students and employees via phone messages, text messages, email, and loudspeakers.

In accordance with Texas House Bill 2758, VC’s Emergency Alert System sends alerts to all students and employees, but you can opt out from receiving alerts or choose not to receive alerts for certain locations. Keep in mind that your alert preferences must be renewed annually as they are automatically reset August 1 each year.

In order to receive campus alerts, it is important to make sure your contact information is up-to-date in the Pirate Portal. To do so, please follow the steps below.
