All Departments within the University contact students using the information provided by students through UT Direct. You should review your UT Direct contact information regularly to ensure it is up to date.
Your UTDirect emergency contact information must be updated annually, or the Registrar may place a bar on your registration. Be sure to verify that your local phone number is one where voice mail messages may be left, and that the email address you provide is one you check often. The University considers email communication to be an official form of notification, and it is the one most commonly used. Students should become familiar with the University’s Electronic Mail Student Notification Policy.
