Our RAVE Alert system is the official way Rio Salado and the Maricopa Community Colleges send notices to students and employees about public safety issues such as weather hazards and closures, power outages, police and fire matters and other news that may affect your health, safety and educational experience.

We encourage you to take the time to confirm the status of your RAVE account, whether you’re opted in and your current mobile phone. Here’s how students can check:

  • Log in to and go to your Student Center
  • Under Personal Information, click on the Demographic Data tab
  • Click on the Phone Numbers tab
  • Ensure your mobile phone number is correct and listed as Mobile. If it is not listed, simply click on the Add a Phone number bar
  • Click on the Save bar

We also encourage you to upload the Rave Guardian mobile app from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Learn more.

We appreciate your commitment to safety.
