Preliminary Advising and Registration Steps

Activate your BUnetID and Password

Your BUnetID and Password are unique identifiers that will allow you to log into Bradley email and your MyBradley account where you can opt into foreWarn, Bradley’s emergency text alert system, and register for classes.  To activate your BUnetID, please refer to the following tutorial video for further assistance. It may take 24 hours before your BUnetID and password is activated.

Opt in or out of Bradley foreWarn

Bradley Forewarn is our emergency text notification system. All Bradley students can opt in by using their phone or a laptop/desktop/tablet.  Please see the instructions below:

Log into your MyBradley account using your BUnetID and Password, click/tap onto “Other Resources” on the lower left side of the page.  Within “Resource Links”, click/tap onto foreWarn.  You will be brought to a page that likely says you are not signed up for foreWarn.  (If you already are, there is no need to continue).  Otherwise, please click on the link below that message and you will be taken to a page where you can enter your domestic cell phone number.  Please make sure you click onto the “Update” button once you have entered your phone number.  Shortly after, you should receive a test text message from foreWarn.  If you don’t please contact the IT Service Desk at 309-677-2964.
