E-mail remains an official means of communication for the university.

Ball State officials have made efforts through the use of the Communications Center to assist campus users in deciding what kind of information they want to receive from the university via their inboxes. But the expectation remains that when the university needs to reach a student or employee—to relay information as diverse as a bursar's bill to a public safety notice—that e-mail is an official means to do so and information delivered via this method will be considered received.

Students are responsible for managing and checking their Ball State e-mail on a regular basis in accordance with the university's technology user agreement. You can manage your inbox through the Communications Center.

It is important to remember that your Ball State e-mail address has been provided to you foremost as a method to receive communications from and about Ball State. These types of e-mail should take precedence over e-mails sent to and from your Ball State account that are of a personal nature.

The university has made a significant investment in the Communications Center, a service that provides student, faculty and staff users with the ability to better control the information coming from the university that personally affects you. For your convenience, you can limit and personalize the messages you receive by visiting the Communications Center and clicking on "Manage my subscriptions." It's easy and only takes a few minutes.

Why You Should Not Flag Our E-mail as Spam
When you do not manage your subscriptions and then flag university e-mails as spam, you are limiting your own official communication with the university. At the same time, you are limiting official communication between the university and anyone else at Ball State who uses the same e-mail provider. Your actions regarding use of technology here at Ball State affects others beside just you.
