Emergency Communications and SendWordNow

SendWordNow is our emergency communications system, used to immediately inform the campus community of emergency situations as well as cancelations and closures caused by severe weather. 

You will receive text messages, phone calls, and/or e-mails immediately as news pertaining to any form of emergency situation is issued. In order to receive these updates, you must provide the college up-to-date emergency contact information to ensure they are notified. 

When you enter Columbia, your emergency contact information will be inserted into the SendWordNow system with the contact information you provided to Columbia during the admissions process. You may choose to change their contact information in the OASIS portal.
