About OSU's Cowboy Alerts

Oklahoma State University has partnered with AT&T RAVE to implement a service for the OSU community that will notify students, faculty and staff in the event of an emergency. Examples include:

  • A campus intruder
  • Acts of terrorism
  • Biohazard threats
  • Weather-related events that pose a threat to the lives of people on campus.

In a situation deemed an emergency, OSU officials will deploy a message to members of the OSU community with information regarding the event and how they should proceed. This information will likely be in the form of a phone call, text message and/or email.

Will I be charged for text messages?
You will be charged for text messages only if your provider charges for you to receive text messages.


Will my emergency contact information be published?
No, it is only to be used by OSU for notification of an emergency.
