Administrative Announcements
Payroll E-mail Scam Alert

Higher education institutions are advised of a phishing attempt to harvest faculty and staff credentials to gain access to payroll information and re-route direct deposits. Phishing is an e-mail that appears to be from a known individual or organization/department. If a request for information appears realistic, call and verify. Campus departments will never ask for faculty/staff usernames or passwords in an e-mail or over the phone. View the advisory here. For more information about phishing scams, click here.
