As a reminder, the Alertus units are a way for the KU Medical Center police department to communicate with the campus in real time during an emergency. These emergencies include:
- Severe weather that requires immediate action,
- Situations that affect public safety, or

If the Alertus system is activated, unless otherwise notified that we are conducting a test, you are in a life-threatening situation and should follow directions in subsequent communications. If there is an emergency, the following communications will take place:
- The sounding of each Alertus modules alarm and flashing lights, along with a text message on the unit's display board,
- A simultaneous emergency broadcast e-mail will be sent to each kumc.edu university e-mail account, and
- If you have opted in to the campus RAVE alert system**, you will receive a text message on your cell phone.
**If you have not opted in to the RAVE text messaging alert system and you wish to do so, go to: https://sa.ku.edu/psp/saku/?cmd=loginand log on to the KUMC Campus page using your KUMC ID and system password. From there, click on "Emergency Contact Info," and follow the directions to update your contact information.
Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
A Federal law that applies to educational agencies and institutions that receive funding under a program administered by the US Department of Education. Under FERPA, schools must give students attending college access to their education records, a chance to have those records amended, and some control over the disclosure of information from their records. FERPA protects a student's information from being disclosed to anyone other than the student or those authorized by the student to receive information. Please view our policy here.
Scholarship/Financial Aid Fraud Prevention
Every year, millions of high school graduates seek creative ways to finance the markedly rising costs of college education. In the process, they sometimes fall prey to scholarship and financial aid scams. On November 5, 2000, Congress passed the College Scholarship Fraud Prevention Act of 2000 (CSFPA). The CSFPA enhances protection against fraud in student financial assistance by establishing stricter sentencing guidelines for criminal financial aid fraud. It also charged the Department, working in conjunction with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), with implementing national awareness activities including a scholarship fraud awareness site on the ED website.
You can help prevent financial aid/scholarship fraud by, in your consumer information, alerting students to the existence of financial aid fraud, informing students and their parents of telltale pitch lines used by fraud perpetrators, and by providing appropriate contact information.
According to the FTC, perpetrators of financial aid fraud often used these telltale lines
- The scholarship is guaranteed or your money back.
- You can’t get this information anywhere else.
- I just need your credit card or bank account number to hold this scholarship.
- We’ll do all the work.
- The scholarship will cost some money.
- You’ve been selected by a ‘national foundation’ to receive a scholarship’ or ‘You’re a finalist’, in a contest you never entered.
