E-mail is an integral part of communications on campus. The purpose of e-mail is to electronically communicate effectively with students, employees, peers and/or other individuals within the higher education infrastructure. All correspondence from the Financial Aid office and the Students Accounts office will be sent to the student’s e-mail address. Therefore, it is imperative that each student regularly check this e-mail and review completely the information transmitted.
SAU users must adhere to the following guidelines:
- Appropriate standards of civility must be used in electronic communications with other users.
- Content must not include rude, obscene or harassing content.
- Any potentially offensive e-mail content must not be sent or forwarded to other users.
- Messages must not be used to intimidate, insult and/or harass other users.
- Chain letters, mail-bombs, junk letters, classified ads, and other forms of mass electronic mailings are not permitted.
- Electronic communication must not be used for solicitation purposes.
- Personal for-profit use of e-mail is not permitted.
E-mail quotas limiting the amount of space utilized to store e-mail messages will be assigned to all users. When a quota has been exceeded, it will result in users not being able to send e-mail messages until the quota has been met. In addition to the amount of storage allocated for e-mail messages, a quota has been assigned to the size of an e-mail message being sent from or received on campus as a security measure. Disk quotas have also been set to limit the amount of data storage that students can use on the SAU file storage server. An e-mail message will be sent to the user’s SAU e-mail address when the user exceeds this disk quota and the user will not be able to save any more data files until the user deletes the amount of stored data to within the quota limit.
Violations of these policies and procedures are subject to disciplinary actions.
