Academic Affairs

Students are responsible for checking and maintaining their University e-mail accounts on a daily basis. Student mailboxes have a 20 MB size limit, and it is your responsibility to maintain a reasonable amount of space available for incoming e-mails.

Your privacy is important to us. Therefore, please keep your e-mail password secure! The faculty and staff use e-mail to communicate privately with students. If you feel your password has been compromised, please logon immediately and change your password.

UMnet e-mail accounts require you to change your password every six months. You must remember your password! If you forget your password, you must go in person to the HS/HSL with your student ID in order to obtain a new password.

Inactive UMnet accounts are periodically removed. If your e-mail account gets removed you must go in person to the HS/HSL with your student ID in order to get a new password.

The e-mail system provided by the School and University is for communications related to the business of the School or University, only. Reasonable exception can be made for important personal communications among two or a few persons. Personal communications such as these should not be distributed to distribution lists or other large groups via the campus e-mail system. If you have questions about use of the e-mail privilege, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs.

Guidelines for the use of e-mail are not based on etiquette alone. E-mail sent with the intent of disrupting communication or other system services is not allowed. The proliferation of unsolicated commercial e-mail (also known as UCE or "spam"), virus warnings, urban legends and other electronic chain letters if abusive to the mail system and the network. These types of messages waste valuable computing resources, and may be considered harassing.

Students are responsible for reviewing the campus policies related to responsible computing and rules of use for our campus.
