In an emergency or crisis situation, Northwest College immediately notifies students and employees.

  • Alerts are sent as texts, emails and voice messages to every individual enrolled in the Emergency Notification System.*
  • The campus public address system broadcasts situation statements and directions.

Additional measures will be taken if the situation warrants.

  • An emergency message or notification will appear on your MyNWC portal.
  • The NWC home page (nwc.edu) may be replaced with an emergency statement about the situation and a continuous feed of updates.
