School policy requires students to check email
By Carol Franch
The Office of Student Affairs reiterates the need for all students to check their university email.
Each student is given an official university email account at the point of admission, and it is their responsibility to stay current with its content.
University email is used as the official communication between the university and the student body.
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Dr. Diane Jones said it’s important for students to keep up with their university email.
“Students need to get in the habit of checking their email,” Jones said.
All official UNCP student notice emails will contain the school seal and will be sent from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
Only the Chancellor, Vice Chancellors or their designees are authorized to send group emails to the general student listserve which is forwarded to all UNCP students, and the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs will oversee group messaging.
Many students are curious if their school email could be forwarded to their primary email account.
According to Maureen Windmeyer, director of Client Services at UCIS, “The ability to forward UNCP email to alternate addresses is currently unavailable.”
Braveweb changes planned for April will allow students to forward their emails,Windmeyer said.
Faculty will determine individually how email communication will be used in their respective classes and will specify their requirements to students.
“All emails should be treated just like regular mail from the university, and students should use it to communicate in an effective and expedient way,” Jones said.
All communication must also comply with the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) as well as other state and federal laws that apply.
