Email Your Cadet

All cadets have an onboard email address:

The onboard email system uses satellites, and sending and receiving messages is not instantaneous; it fluctuates based on satellite connectivity. Attachments cannot be sent or received onboard the ship. 

In case of an emergency whereby communication by email is not possible, please call the Commandant, Captain Hanft at (718) 409-7350, who will relay the information.
