What you need to know

The university provides several e-mail options to current students, faculty, and staff. E-mail is an official means of communication, and sometimes that's the only way information is delivered. Remember to check your e-mail account at least once a week and keep a current e-mail address on file the the university.

Basic e-mail: Even if you already have an e-mail account, ITS recommends that students sign up for a basic university e-mail account. Not only does it identify you as a member of one of the top universities in the country, it's the best way for us to deliver your mail because other e-mail providers sometimes reject university e-mail.

Premium e-mail & Calendar: With premium e-mail, you can securely access, generate, and organize your e-mail, calendar, contacts, data, and more. This account also allows you to synchronize vital information found on your laptop, BlackBerry, and Pocket PC.

Departmental e-mail: Your department may provide its own e-mail accounts. Ask your departmental contact if this is the right option for you.
