Registrar Email Policy

Email as a Formal Mode of Communication

Recognizing the increasing need for electronic communication with students, the Office of the Registrar at Rice University recognizes and utilizes email as an official means of communication with students.

The Office of the Registrar will routinely send official communications to students' official university email address. Because email is a primary mechanism for sending official communications to students at Rice, students must check email regularly. Certain communications may be time-sensitive. Failure to read official university communications sent to the students' official Rice email addresses does not absolve students from knowing and complying with the content of said communications. It is the students' responsibility to maintain adequate memory space in their inbox in order to ensure that all messages are received accordingly.

All use of Rice email should be consistent with Rice University's Appropriate Use of Computer Resources Policy.
