Anytime your address is changed within my.SMU, you will receive an automated email. This automated notification will help protect your access and personal information by ensuring that an address change is not made without your approval or knowledge. Within 24 hours following the change, you will receive the email notification in your SMU Email account. If you authorized the change, please just delete the notice.
If you did not authorize the change, please login to my.SMU and verify that the addresses on record are correct. If one is incorrect, please update the address and respond to the email notification immediately or call 214-SMU-MyID (768-6943). There are several departments that are responsible for investigating any unauthorized changes. They will be notified and will begin the investigation.
Below is a sample email sent from my.SMU when a change has been made:
