Majors & Minors Email Help
To send to all students in a major or minor, address the email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org will work, all that's needed is email@example.com.
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:
|CFA||THE||PE||Theatre Arts (Performance)|
|CFA||THE||PR||Theatre Arts (Production)|
|CFA||THE||ST||T||Theatre Arts (Speech/Theatre Education)|
firstname.lastname@example.org will only include the first one.
email@example.com will only include the first three.
firstname.lastname@example.org will include all four.
Another example is Mathematics, which has these codes:
|LAS||MTH||T||Mathematics (Secondary Ed)|
email@example.com would only include the first one.
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com would only include the second one.
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com would include both
|GRD||E E||Electrical Engineering|
would be firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
