Communication Policy

In our on-going campaign to be environmentally aware by “going green” and to increase the safety, efficiency, and speed of our communication with students, NYU-Poly has instituted a communication policy in which NYU-Poly will no longer use paper communication with students.

All NYU-Poly students have a Polytechnic Institute of NYU e-mail account and, through the PeopleSoft Blackboard integration, access to MyPoly for institutional information concerning the classes for which they are registered and organizational information and services. Because of this robust electronic access, NYU-Poly faculty and administration will contact students with important information and notices electronically only through the various communication technologies and environments provided by the Institute.

To ensure that students both receive and are responsive to important notices from all departments and offices at NYU-Poly, students need to observe the following policy:

  • The NYU-Poly e-mail account is a student’s official point of contact. Students are expected to directly access this account at least once each school day.
  • Students must be aware of notices posted on MyPoly. It is the student’s responsibility to check this portal during the drop/add period of registration and regularly during the term in order to verify the accuracy of his/her schedule and to read any official institute notices. Schedules should be verified by students at least once during the first two weeks of the term and once after mid-semester. The Academic Calendar that delineates the different registration periods is also available on MyPoly. Students should be familiar with this calendar and follow it accordingly.
  • Students are required to be aware of course-related information available on their course environment on Blackboard, such as course syllabi, resources, calendar, assignment expectations, special announcements, grades etc.
