Safety First Alert
Michigan Tech’s Safety First Alert communication service allows you to receive emergency and time-sensitive notifications via voice, email, and text message. You will receive an email in your HuskyMail account prompting you to sign up (or opt out) in August during Orientation.
Your parents and family members are an important factor in your success at college. We view your family as a partner in fostering your growth and development, and we encourage them to respect your independence as a young adult in the process of becoming responsible, accountable, and capable.
You and your family should review and discuss Michigan Tech’s parent and guardian philosophy so you are aware of our policies for communicating with families. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) does not permit public colleges and universities to provide information about students without their permission.
Many useful links for parents and family can be found on the Michigan Tech Parents and Family page.
You can grant access to select individuals allowing them to view your student record information.
