Student Email Accounts
All students are provided with a personalized email account through Microsoft Office 365. You will receive the email address upon registering for classes (NOT after submitting an application.)
This is also used for what is known as "Single Sign-on" and allows access into My Mission Portal and Canvas.
Your new email address will look something like this: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are taking an online class, this is the ONLY WAY you can log into Canvas and hear from your instructors and complete assignments.
