Every student who is enrolled for credit classes at St. Mary’s College of Maryland is issued a student e-mail account, which is the official means of communication from departments such as the Registrar’s Office, Academic Services, Residence Life and Student Activities. E-mail will also be used to notify students of certain emergencies, pending judicial action, and school closings due to inclement weather. Most faculty and staff rely on e-mail to communicate with students. It is the responsibility of each student to maintain and check their College e-mail account regularly. Students are accountable to know information disseminated through the e-mail account. Failure to read College communications sent to the e-mail account does not absolve the student from knowing and complying with the content of these communications.
