Effective Fall 2021, you will be required to use a college affiliated email address for college related communications. While you have always had the ability to opt-in to a college email address, most of you have chosen to use your personal email addresses instead. This change is being made for the following reasons: To increase the college’s ability to effectively communicate with you by reducing the number of incorrect or out of date email addresses on file; To ensure that we are compliant with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and other data privacy regulations; To make sure critical information is being delivered in a timely fashion; and To reaffirm to you that email is the college’s official method of communication with you regarding topics of an academic, student service or administrative nature.
The college will continue to use the personal email addresses on file for you until Monday, August 16, 2021. In preparation for the change to the college issued email please refer to: Student Email | Inver Hills Community College.
