How to add an Emergency Contact
Emergency Contact Information:
Recent regulations of the Clery/HEOA Acts require each College/University to annually provide each student residing in campus housing, regardless of age, an opportunity to designate a confidential contact person.
This contact information will only be used if he or she is ever reported as missing. This missing person contact is anyone you register and may or may not be your parent or guardian, unless you are under the age of eighteen (18) and not emancipated, in which the university is legally required to notify your parent or guardian.
The missing person contact can be different from, or the same as, the general contact person. The missing person contact information will be kept confidential and will only be provided to Longwood Police to assist in the furtherance of a missing person investigation. For more information regarding the Cleary Act please see http://www.higheredcenter.org/mandates/clery-act.
If you choose to provide a missing person contact information you can do so by following the instructions below:
