The names, telephone numbers and campus e-mail addresses of all Nicholls students who are currently on file in Banner are automatically entered into the emergency notification database.

However, it is critical that you log onto Banner and update your contact information. It is the responsibility of each student to enter a valid cell phone number, including area code, to be eligible for the text messaging service.

  • Go to the Banner Self Service Web Site.

The database is secure, and your personal information will only be used to contact you in case of an emergency. Please be aware that contact information in the Banner system should be checked for accuracy otherwise you may not receive important emergency alerts.
