Okra Alert

An emergency message called an OKRAlert will be sent during an emergency situation on or near campus.

The Okra Alert system gathers cell phone numbers (if provided) and Delta State email addresses upon enrollment.

Anyone wishing to verify their enrollment in Okra Alert should go to:

  • DSU Online Services
  • login
  • ‘Personal Information’
  • ‘Enroll in OkraAlert (Emergency Text Message Notification)’

The system will allow only one cell phone number per person.
