Majors & Minors Email Help

To send to all students in a major or minor, address the email to aaabbbccd-yytt@majors.bradley.edu or aaabbbccd-yytt@minors.bradley.edu

where

  • aaa is the 3-letter college code.
  • bbb is 3-character curriculum code.
  • cc is 2-character concentration code, if any.
  • d is 1-letter teaching code, if any.
  • yy is the last 2 digits of the year.
  • tt is the semester code used by the Registrar's Office:
    • FA - Fall
    • SP - Spring
    • JA - January Interim
    • J2 - January Study Abroad
    • M1 - May 3-week Interim
    • M2 - May 8-week Interim
    • S1 - Summer Session 1
    • S2 - Summer Session 2
    • SA - Summer Study Abroad

If you omit -yytt, all students who are in the specified major or minor right when the message is sent will get the message. If you specify -yytt, all students who were (or will be) in the major or minor at any time during the specified semester (including those who added or dropped the major or minor during the semester) will get the message. Note that incoming freshmen are not officially in their majors and minors until fall semester starts, so sending a message in late summer without -yytt will not cause the message to be sent to incoming freshmen with that major or minor. You must use -yytt to specify the fall semester if you want to include incoming freshmen.

In aaa, bbb, cc and d, replace all spaces with the underscore character (_). It is not necessary to include trailing underscores. For example, the major College=BUS, Curriculum=ECO (Economics) has no concentration or teaching code. Although buseco___@majors.bradley.edu will work, all that's needed is buseco@majors.bradley.edu.

An underscore (including omitted trailing underscores) will only match a major code with a space in the corresponding position. Using "**" for cc or "*" for d will match anything in that position. For example, there are 4 different types of Theatre majors:

aaa bbb cc d  
CFA THE     Theatre Arts
CFA THE PE   Theatre Arts (Performance)
CFA THE PR   Theatre Arts (Production)
CFA THE ST T Theatre Arts (Speech/Theatre Education)

cfathe@majors.bradley.edu will only include the first one.
cfathe**@majors.bradley.edu will only include the first three.
cfathe***@majors.bradley.edu will include all four.

Another example is Mathematics, which has these codes:

aaa bbb cc d  
LAS MTH     Mathematics
LAS MTH   T Mathematics (Secondary Ed)

lasmth@majors.bradley.edu would only include the first one.
lasmth__t@majors.bradley.edu or lasmth**t@majors.bradley.edu would only include the second one.
lasmth__*@majors.bradley.edu or lasmth***@majors.bradley.edu would include both

aaa bbb cc d  
GRD E E     Electrical Engineering

would be grde_e@majors.bradley.edu.

Mail will be sent to the students' Bradley-provided @mail.bradley.edu address. Students only checking their email at other accounts (GMail, Yahoo!, Hotmail, etc.) will not see the message unless they have arranged forwarding from their Bradley mailboxes.

Email must be sent from an @fsmail.bradley.edu or @bumail.bradley.edu address.

Upper/lower case does not matter for any part of the address.
