Student Directory Withholding Procedure 

An electronic directory of student campus e-mail addresses is provided to the campus community in the interest of building community and fostering communication between and among students, faculty, and staff.

The college allows you, the student, to decide if you wish to withhold your campus e-mail address from the student directory.  To withhold your e-mail address, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to Personal Information > Student Directory Profile.
  2. To suppress your directory listing, check the "Do Not Display" box next to your name, then click "Submit Changes."

If you change your mind later, you can go back to the page and uncheck the "Do Not Display" box.

The requested change may take up to 24 hours to take effect.

Please note that failure on the part of any student to request withholding of their campus e-mail address from the directory indicates individual approval for release of the campus e-mail address.
