May and Summer Session Class email Aliases

ITSS is ready to accept requests for class email lists (aka aliases) for Summer Session 2003 and May Session 2003. For security reasons, you must have a UMD faculty or staff email account in order to request a class alias.

IMPORTANT: When selecting the section for your summer or May session classes, be sure to select classes labeled "su2003" (Summer 2003) rather than "s2003" (Spring 2003). The Spring semester classes are still in the list because we often get requests for aliases for the current semester during exam week.

Go to the Class Email List Requests web page to make a request.

Or, you can go to the ITSS Faculty/Staff Services page and click on "Class aliases" under the "Course Support" heading.

Class aliases are activated three times per day. A confirmation message will be sent to the instructor when the list is activated. It will contain with the address of the list and a list of the usernames contained in the list (so that you can verify that it is the right class). The same type of confirmation message is also sent when an alias is updated with additions which are requested via the class aliases web page.

As always, students who register for the class are automatically added to the list within a day or two, and students who drop the class are removed.

There are a number of services such as authenticated web pages and grade posting which can be requested when the request for a class email list is submitted. Barb Johnson ( and Bruce Reeves ( can answer questions about these services and help you utilize them.
