Prospective & Admitted Students Email Outreach

In support of university-wide recruitment and marketing efforts for academic programs, Enrollment Communications provides services for delivering graphic and media-rich email communications to prospective students and applicants.

Email outreach guidelines for current students, faculty, staff and alumni are provided. Targeted email campaigns, when coupled with engaging graphics and personalization have proven to be more engaging than plain text.

Email Campaigns

Select an appropriate email design and submit your request through the request form. In order to receive prospective communications on time, please submit your request ahead of the "request by" dates. Delays usually arise from incomplete requests and edits rather than slow service or request volume. Please leave enough time to get it right, not just get it done.
