You Should Know
Passwords protect your privacy and help assure advisors that requests for information sent via email are actually from the student. Protect your passwords; do not share them with others and do not save them to your browser. The university will never ask for your password. Any request for your password is phishing and you should forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org. To further protect student privacy the university also requires DUO login for many online systems.
Email between you and a university faculty or staff person is officially part of your academic record. When needed, advisors may copy emails into OnCourse (the university system for shared notes). They will remove private information you may have shared in email. Email isn't secure, so please be careful about what you include.
