RAVE Alert System

Emergency communications & other important info via text message & email

We encourage you to register your cell phone for RAVE Alert messages.

Kilgore College uses the RAVE Alert system to notify students of emergency situations.  Additionally, we use this system to notify students of school closures or delayed openings.

Your official Kilgore College email address has already been registered for the alert system.  However, we know that text messaging is faster and more widely read.
