About New York Tech Alerts

New York Tech Alerts is a mass notification system for emergency communications and student outreach. It's an efficient, timely way for New York Tech to contact students, faculty, and staff via text message (SMS) or voice message in the event of emergencies or campus delays/closures. Students may also receive administrative reminders and notices.

New York Tech Alerts uses 23177 as the incoming text messaging number. Please save this number and program it as New York Tech Alerts so you can quickly recognize it as the official source of New York Tech messages.

Because the security of our New York Tech community is of utmost importance, New York Tech Alerts is an opt-out system. All current full- and part-time students, faculty, and staff members are automatically part of the system and do not have to sign up to receive New York Tech Alerts. If you are not part of the school's contact database and you try to subscribe, you will not be able to do so.

Updating Your Information

Please log in each semester and make sure your information is up to date. Updates may take up to two days.

Use “Primary Outreach” as the main phone at which New York Tech may contact you for essential student services, such as Registrar or Bursar. You may only select one phone (mobile or other) to be your Primary Outreach.

If you forget your New York Tech password (also used for my.nyit.edu), you can reset it here. Then, return to manage your New York Tech Alerts and complete your alert updates.

Opting Out

While we strongly encourage you to use New York Tech Alerts, you may opt-out of it at any time by texting STOP NYIT to 23177. If you change your mind, you may request to begin receiving text messages again by texting SUBSCRIBE NYIT to 23177.
