Every student who is enrolled for credit classes at St. Mary’s College of Maryland is issued a student email account which is the official means of communication from departments such as the Registrar’s Office, Student Support Services, Residence Life, and Student Activities. Email will also be used to notify students of certain emergencies, pending conduct 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 SMCM e-mail account regularly. Students are accountable to know information disseminated through the SMCM email account. Failure to read College communications sent to the SMCM email account does not absolve the student from knowing and complying with the content of these communications.
