Administration asks students to check e-mail

The University of North Carolina at Pembroke has adopted a policy that all students will have an official e-mail account at the point of admission.             

Student e-mail addresses are all of the form that ends in  It is the student’s responsibility to check his or her university supplied e-mail account in order to stay current with university communications.        

If they choose, students can redirect their university e-mail address to another account.

However, the university will not be responsible for the handling of e-mail by outside vendors or departmental servers.            

“Students are obligated and held responsible to check this type of medium just like any other mail,” Dr. Diane Jones Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs said.

Faculty will determine how electronic forms of communication (e.g. e-mail) will be used in their respective classes and will specify their requirements to students.                                            

Faculty can make the assumption that students regularly review the message in their accounts and faculty can use e-mail for communication to students in their classes accordingly.            

All e-mail sent to students should include the name, title, e-mail address and telephone number of the person sending the e-mail so that the student may verify the integrity of the e-mail.

All electronic communication to students must be transmitted in compliance with the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other applicable local, state and federal laws.

Only the Chancellor, Vice Chancellors or their designees are authorized to send group e-mails to the general student listserve to be forwarded to UNCP students (e-mail addressed to all students). 

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs will provide the oversight for group messaging.            

For questions, please call Student Affairs, Ext. 6175.
