Class Listserv

The instructor will use the listserv system to communicate information to students throughout the class. It is your responsibility to read mail sent to that account listed in the class listserv, either by accessing the account directly or by forwarding mail sent to that account to another Internet e-mail account that you read on a regular basis. Contact the instructor if you need your email account on the list changed.

Note: It is best that you use your UNT eaglemail account for course e-mail. Hotmail and other free e-mail services tend to block lists or places messages into a junk folder. Be sure to check often at the beginning of the semester that you are getting your course e-mail updates.
