Electronic Notification Policy

In January 2006, Southern Connecticut State University adopted the SCSU Electronic Mail Student Notification Policy which outlines email as an official means of communication to students, the same as a traditional postal mail service.

Electronic Notification Policy Excerpt

Students, faculty, staff and administration at Southern Connecticut State University increasingly rely on electronic communication, motivated by its convenience, speed, cost-effectiveness, and environmental advantages. Because of its general acceptance, use and availability, the University considers email to be one of the official means of communication within the SCSU community. Accordingly, effective January 2006, the University will use the SCSU assigned student e mail as the primary address for purposes of official notifications regarding, but not limited to, registration, financial aid, billing, and admission, with the full expectation that these emails will be received and read by students in a timely fashion. Students should check their email frequently and consistently, with the recognition that certain communications may be time-critical.
