  • The University will never ask for your password, social security number in an email.
  • Do not leave your computer, phone, or any other computer/phone accessory unattended.

Always pay attention to the emails you are receiving with your Rockets email account.  Make sure you are:

  • checking who the email is coming from.  If it is not coming from a address, it could potentially be a phishing email.
  • If the email is coming from a address and there is a link, hover over the link to make sure the url is coming from
  • Never click on a link or an attachment from someone you do not know.  Never give out personal information in an email unless you are communicating with that person or department.
  • Never give out your password to anyone.
