Change in GatorLink Policy
Chuck Frazier, Vice Provost for Information Technology
The following policy regarding the use of Gatorlink email was proposed by the ITAC – Data Infrastructure and Administrative Computing Committee and subsequently approved by the Information Technology Advisory Council.
Official University business email will be communicated to students using the University GatorLink email account. That is, official email will be sent exclusively to GatorLinkUserName@ufl.edu.
The preferred email address recorded for all students will be the GatorLink address. This is the email address displayed in the online phonebook. Students may continue to use the forwarding mechanism to deliver their email to other mail services, if they wish. However, it is the student’s responsibility to insure that the forwarding address is current so that they receive official communications from the University.
All students will be notified about this change in policy via email and postal mail.
