Our programs will send official communications to students using the email address you have provided on the application form. It is important that you continue to use this email address or notify our office of any change.

Since email has been adopted as a primary mechanism for sending official communications to students, students must check email regularly in order to read important messages and notifications. Certain communications may be time-sensitive. Failure to read official University communications sent to the student does not absolve the student from knowing and complying with the content of those official communications. Students must also ensure that there is sufficient space in their e-mail inboxes to allow email to be delivered and received. Be sure that emails are not being sent to your junk mail/SPAM.
