Consent for Electronic Communication (E-Consent)

What is e-Consent

The E-Sign Act requires that the University of Notre Dame receive a student’s voluntary consent to receive electronic communications regarding certain notices and disclosures.

Why is Consent Needed?

Before the University can electronically send certain notices and disclosures to students, we must receive the consent of the students to send those notices electronically. Students who do not agree to receiving electronic communications, and students who simply do not complete the consent request form, will continue to receive the required notices. But for those students the notices will come via paper mail, and this paper processing will likely delay the financial aid process for those students.
