Email Email List
We would like to encourage SARC students' support systems (i.e. parent/guardian, significant other, community partners) to join an email list. We will send the same reminders we send students throughout the semester. For example, we send reminders to schedule final exams, reminders to request alternative textbook formats, notifications of events on campus or in the community, and much more.
