Student Contact Information Policy



Policy Statement

Syracuse University students are required to provide to the University accurate and timely information regarding their addresses, telephone numbers, and other contact information. (Also see the Syracuse University Computing and Electronic Communications Policy which states, in relevant part, that “students are expected to maintain their [email] accounts and check their email daily.”)

Contact information concerning students and their parents, guardians, and/or emergency contacts facilitates effective communication and access to these persons in appropriate circumstances. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • health and safety emergencies affecting students or members of their families;
  • notification concerning opportunities or important events about which students may wish to be informed; and
  • general information sharing from schools, colleges, and departments of the University.

Contact information will be maintained in accordance with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).

Students can submit contact information via MySlice. Log in and select an option under “Personal Information.” Alternatively, students can submit contact information to the Registrar’s Office, 106 Steele Hall, in person, by telephone (315 443-2422), or by email. Contact information should be updated whenever changes occur.

Students are advised that failure to comply with this policy could result in disciplinary action.
