Class Standing Distribution Lists

Class Standing distribution lists contain the addresses for all students that have been classified according to whether they have attained Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Senior, Graduates or Special student status.

Who Can Use the Lists

No one can see the membership of the lists to ensure student privacy. You must get pre-approval from the Office of the Registrar before you can send to these lists.
