NEW TO STUDENT EMAIL?
All students, registered for classes, have a dedicated e-mail address that will serve as a primary method of contact between students, faculty, and administrative offices. All students are encouraged to log into their e-mail account to activate it which will remain active for an indefinite period of time.
Student e-mail is powered by Microsoft Office 365 which will allow you to send and receive e-mail from any computer connected to the internet.
