Marquette University utilizes e-mail as one of the official means of communication with students to keep them informed of important information such as financial aid and billing data; college deadlines, events and updates; and important campus news. Each student is issued an official eMarq e-mail account for use while he or she is enrolled.
E-mail is an appropriate and preferred method for official communication by Marquette with students unless otherwise prohibited by law. The university has the right to send official communication to students by e-mail with the assumption that students will receive, read and, if necessary, act in a timely manner based upon these e-mails.
Assignment of student eMarq accounts
Upon application to Marquette, a university eMarq e-mail account is automatically created for each prospective student in the form of firstname.lastname@example.org or as otherwise determined by IT Services. Official e-mail accounts are maintained by IT Services and will be published online and in the student directory. This eMarq e-mail address remains with the student throughout their academic career at Marquette.
Use of student eMarq accounts
It is the responsibility of students to access and maintain these accounts in accordance with other university electronic communication policies including, but not limited to, the Acceptable Use Policy
Students are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis. Students must make sure that there is sufficient space in their accounts to allow for e-mail to be delivered and have the responsibility to recognize that certain e-mails may be time sensitive. Students will not be held responsible for an interruption in their ability to access a message because of system problems that prevent timely delivery of, or access to, messages. These include scheduled and unscheduled outages of the system.
More information about eMarq is available online here.
Forwarding of E-mail
Students who choose to have their email forwarded to an unofficial e-mail address do so at their own risk. Marquette University is not responsible for any e-mail beyond delivery to eMarq accounts. Students are still responsible for official e-mail as outlined above.
