Subject: Today’s UT Alert Test

Earlier this afternoon, the university tested the text messaging and e-mail messaging portions of its UT Alert notification system.

If you did not receive the messages, visit the UT Alert page and verify your account information. You can troubleshoot common problems here.

If you verified that your information was correct at the time of our test, please call 865-974-3061 or e-mail

If you have not signed up for UT Alert, please take time to enroll now so that you will be included in important emergency messages.

You will need your NetID and password to register.

UT Alert messages are sent only during serious emergencies that require you to act immediately or to be aware of an imminent threat to your safety. We also will use the system to let you know about major disruptions in campus schedules.
