Phishing: IMPORTANT – View your Transcript & Student Record! 

Posted on: May 21, 2019 | By: infosec | Filed under: Phishing at Elon




IMPORTANT: View your Transcript & Student Record!


The from line of this email notes Office of Student Records and appears to be legitimate as it includes Elon’s logo. 

Message: The Visual Experiential Transcript was created as part of a NASPA and AACRAO partnership funded by the Lumina Foundation to develop new models for comprehensive student records and first launched spring 2016 to graduating students in the Class of 2016.

A copy of your Visual Experiential Transcript (Visual EXP) is now available online. View and keep up to date with your performance, grades and entire student record.

Do revert if there are any corrections or changes to be effected.  There was a link in the email in caps VIEW TRANSCRIPT and there was a legitimate looking email signature at the bottom:
