Responding to increased concerns about security issues of all kinds on University campuses nationwide, we have initiated a process to require students to provide and/or verify Emergency Contact Information on a regular basis. This information will be used to contact designated individuals in the event of an emergency involving the student while on campus or when an emergency notification alert to advise our community is released. When you log into SIS, you may notice an entry in "Your Holds Summary" indicating Emergency Contact Verification. This "Hold" will prevent all Registration/Add/Drop/Swap a Class activity until you take action to verify your Emergency Contact Information. You will be able to release this hold yourself through SIS by clicking on the hold and following the instructions. We encourage you to be proactive and verify this information BEFORE you actually need to register for classes or use Add/Drop/Swap a Class functionality in SIS. For assistance, a Help document has been posted on the SIS website.
Verify and update your account in the UML Emergency Notification System to get notified in the event of a campus emergency or crisis at:
