Office 365 & Email

Once a student is registered for courses, the College will no longer send email to an off-campus email address. Likewise, employees must send any College-related correspondence to students and other employees from their College email account.
  • Your college email address book contains the names of all students, faculty, and staff on campus. You can search by name, so there is no need to remember any email addresses.
