GRADUATE SOONER WITH FALL BREAK INTENSIVE CLASSES


Grad Girl
Short on credits for fall semester? It’s not too late to register for a fall break (Oct 10-14, 2016) intensive general education course. Courses are offered at the U’s Sandy Center and main campus and will be completed over the one-week period. This is a great option for students who need one more class for financial aid or scholarships, need a replacement class, or want to reduce class load throughout the rest of the semester. Register for a fall break intensive course and graduate sooner.

Course listings and more information can be found here.


UIT MAKES CHANGES TO MANAGE UMAIL SPAM


UMail logo
As part of The University of Utah’s proactive stance on reducing the amount of email spam, we continue to implement best practices in security controls within the UMail environment. Accordingly, on Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. we removed off-campus access to less-secure means of sending/receiving UMail. This method is referred to as “Authenticated SMTP” in some email clients.

The vast majority of University UMail users are connecting to UMail through secure channels (HTTPS) and modern, industry-standard connectors. The small number of identified users of off-campus SMTP UMail have been identified and contacted directly and advised to change the way they send/receive email so that they don’t experience any UMail service disruption.

In the rare event that you or a colleague are affected by this change, other options are:

For IT security reasons, the U currently does not support the Outlook mobile app for iOS/Android. Please do not try to use the mobile app to access UMail.

If you know of colleagues who received a direct email from UIT and are unsure why, or have any other questions, please call your local help desk or a central help desk:

  • Main Campus: UIT Help Desk 801-581-4000 x1
  • Hospitals and Clinics: ITS Service Desk 801-587-6000
