A Message from the Division of Information Technology
In line with other UT system components and in compliance with the UTPA 2009-2011 Catalog, the University community along with the Student Government Association has approved the move to mandatory use of the UTPA assigned email address (BroncMail) for all official university email communication with the students.
When will the change take effect?
Effective June 1, 2011, the use of an alternative “preferred” email will no longer be available to receive email communication from the University. Instead the official university assigned email address must be used (example: firstname.lastname@example.org).
What is the reason for making this change?
When communicating to students using non-University assigned email addresses, the University cannot guarantee delivery as an outside email provider is responsible for delivering the message. The University has experienced issues where the email is blocked or delayed significantly due to the University being placed on the outside email provider’s spam list. This has created a situation where important information is not being delivered to you, our students (examples: student financial aid notices, grades, academic coursework notices, etc.).
What does this mean to me?
