Shelton State Community College utilizes a state-of-the-art emergency notification system called CampusCast. This system will allow you to receive instant notification should an emergency occur on our campus. You can receive alerts via email, text messaging, land-line and/or cell phone. Standard charges for incoming calls and text messages apply (Please check with your provider if you have questions concerning those charges).

During the first two weeks of each semester, an email will be sent to the email account you have identified in myShelton (Banner) with your login information.

Failure to log in and edit your contact preferences may prohibit you from receiving accurate and timely CampusCast alert notifications.
To log into your CampusCast Dashboard, please go to http://www.mycampuscast.net/login.aspx.
The first time you visit CampusCast, you will be asked to change your password. You may also change your username.
To add a new contact phone number, simply select the "Contact Type" that you are adding, type in the phone number, add an optional comment, and check if you want this number used in an emergency situation only. Once you have checked your information for accuracy, click the "Add" button. You can add as many numbers as you'd like (home phone, cell phone, parent's phone, etc.). Once you have added all your information, your CampusCast is complete! If any of your information changes, remember to log into your CampusCast Dashboard and update your information.  


If you have any questions or problems, please submit a Help Desk ticket. Select CampusCast Rapid Notification in the System drop down menu.

Thank you for your participation, and we look forward to being of service to you with an increased emphasis on timely and helpful communication.
