Emergency Messages
In situations of medical emergency, Campus Police will attempt to locate you in class and provide a message. A caller attempting to reach you will be asked to identify him/herself, provide a phone number at which he/she can be reached, and explain the nature of the emergency. In cases deemed non-emergency (change of plans with transportation, etc) your schedule will not be released to a third party without your prior written consent. You are, therefore, encouraged to provide family members or childcare providers with your schedule for their use in non-emergency situations. At no time shall a student's schedule be released.
