Student email is an official means of communication at Middle Georgia State University (MGA), and it is the student’s responsibility to frequently check their MGA student email account. It is also the student’s responsibility to update their student information online SWORDS or with the Registrar’s Office if any personal information changes while enrolled. In  addition to  student email, MGA provides important information to students via SMS (text message). Providing your telephone number to MGA authorizes the university to contact you regarding enrollment deadlines and requirements and/or campus emergencies. Enrollment  messages  will  be  labeled  Enrollment  Alert,  while  messages  regarding  campus  safety  or emergencies will be labeled Knight Alert. To opt out of receiving one or both of these, please indicate your preferences by accessing your  SWORDS account and selecting “Personal Information” and then “Update Addresses and Phones.”
