Parent Email Address
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
Recently, there has been a renewed interest on campus to obtain and store the email address of parents. Some of this information is gathered during the admissions process, however, many of our applications come through the "common app" and parent email is not a required field.
Are any institutions collecting parent email and how?
What purposes is parent email being used for?
- emergency contact?
- notice about student records / financial?
- general campus activities?
For institutions using parent email for "non-business" related contact, do you offer opt-out/opt-in?
Thanks in advance,
