Anoka-Ramsey Community College is revamping the way Star Alert (college emergency and weather-related messaging notification system) registrations occur. We are moving from an Opt-In (self-registration) to an Opt-Out (auto-registration) process.
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) will be purging current registrations by October 7, 2019 and auto-registering current students, faculty and staff into the Star Alert system.
If you are external to ARCC (parent of a student, contract employee, etc.), you will need to re-register into the StarAlert portal on or after October 7, 2019.
Instructions to re-register will be made available on Tuesday, October 8, 2019.
