Swampfox Alerts

The Swamp Fox Emergency Alert System has been adopted by Francis Marion University in order to quickly notify students via SMS text messaging and email in the event there is an imminent campus emergency or other urgent campus alerts. All students that provide a cellphone number and cellphone carrier will automatically be added to our notification system. In addition to being notified of an imminent campus emergency, students will also receive notifications regarding other situations that affect the status of the campus like weather-related class or school closings.

If you’re a student, faculty, or staff member who has not been enrolled in Swampfox Alerts please contact the Office of the Registrar to do so.
