Already submitted your Emergency Contact Information but need to confirm it for registration?
You are able to grant another individual online access to your student account. This person will be called your Proxy. Your Proxy will only be able to see the information that you give them permission to view. You can view more information about Proxy access here. We will never reach out to an individual to whom you have granted Proxy access to share information. They may or may not be the same individuals that you’ve listed as your Emergency Contact.
We use the information from your admission application to create your student record such as address, phone number, and primary email are imported to your Student Record. If we need to contact in the event of a non-emergency such as an issue with your financial aid, academic standing, etc. this is the information that we would use to do so. You can always view the contact information we have on record for you online through your student account.
