Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is NYIT Alerts?

A: It is a mass notification system for emergency communications and student outreach. It's an efficient, timely way for NYIT to contact all students, faculty, and staff via text message (SMS) or voice messages in the event of emergencies or campus delays/closures. Students may also be contacted for various outreach programs. Because the security of the NYIT community is of utmost importance, NYIT Alerts is an opt-out system. While we strongly encourage you to use NYIT Alerts, you may opt-out of it at any time.


Q: What if I already signed up for NYIT Alerts?

A: No worries. You are still part of the NYIT Alerts. We do ask that you to log in to check each semester to make sure your information is up to date.


Q: Problems logging in to NYIT Alerts?

A: If you forgot your NYIT password (the same one used for students' myMail or NYITConnect), you can reset it at: https://register.nyit.edu/reset/. Then return to NYIT Alerts to complete your alert registration.


Q: What if I have other problems with NYIT Alerts?

A: Check the FAQs below and log in to make sure your information is correct. If you still need help, contact NYIT's Service Central (516.686.1400, option 1) for assistance.


Q: Is NYIT Alerts for text messages or voice messages?

A: NYIT Alerts sends alerts via voice and text channels. Only one phone may be selected to receive text messages. All phones will receive voice messages in an emergency.

Q: From what number will NYIT Alerts text messages display?

A: You will see 23177 as the incoming text messaging number. Please save this number and program it as NYIT Alerts so that you can quickly recognize this number as the official source of official messages.

A: You may request to begin receiving text messages by texting SUBSCRIBE NYIT to 23177.


Q: If I change mobile phone providers but keep the same number, do I need to update my NYIT Alerts information?

A: No. Once your phone number has been opted-in, it stays registered within the system.


Q: What if my information is not registered with the school, but I want to receive alerts anyway? Can I text 23177 to SUBSCRIBE NYIT and still receive messages?

A: No, you will not receive messages. If you are not part of the school's contact database, and you try to subscribe, you will not be able to.
