UT considers email an official means of correspondence; hence, if an administrator sends you an e-mail message, you are responsible for reading it and taking action, if necessary. Pay attention to e-mail messages from the Graduate Advisor and Coordinator; they will be full of information about deadlines, fellowship opportunities, and job possibilities. Make sure that the University and the Department have your current e-mail address. 


Expectations Regarding Frequency of Reading Email

Students are expected to check email on a frequent and regular basis in order to stay current with University-related communications, recognizing that certain communications may be time-critical. It is recommended that email is checked daily, but at a minimum, three times per week. Regular email management will also minimize the risk that the inbox will be full, causing the email to be returned to the sender with an error. Undeliverable messages returned because of either a full inbox or use of a "spam" filter will be considered delivered without further action required of the University.




It is the student's responsibility to communicate regularly with their Supervisors, Committee Members, Instructors, and the Graduate Advisor and Graduate Program Coordinator about academic matters. Students who fail to maintain regular communication oftentimes find themselves in situations that delay their academic progress.




Department and Center Email Lists

Department and Center graduate students are subscribed to several lists to receive pertinent information from faculty, language coordinators, and the Graduate Program Coordinator. These lists are reserved for students currently enrolled in our program.
