Is there a charge for calls or text messages received from PAS?

For example, if your calling plan does not include text messaging, you may incur a charge for a text message received from PAS, based on the rates of your cell phone service provider.

What is W.A.R.N?

PAS is powered by the W.A.R.N mass notification system. The W.A.R.N solution allows designated university administrators to send time-sensitive messages to the mobile phones, email, and/or pagers of PAS subscribers.
