Email is an official means of communication between the college and you. The college will use the personal email address you provide and maintain in your E-services record. You can use any email address you choose, including the EDU address provided by the college. It is extremely important that the personal email address you provide in your E-services record is accurate, up-to-date and one you check regularly. That address is the address that is associated with your D2L Brightspace account that your instructors and classmates will see.
NEED AN EDU EMAIL ACCOUNT?
The college provides each student an EDU email account in the Microsoft Office 365 system. We don’t require its use but it can be used as your personal email address like any other email account. To log into your EDU account:
Click on Account Management, then Demographic Info.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find your email address on record.
To update your email address, enter the new address and click Submit.
KEEP YOUR ADDRESS WORKING
It is your responsibility to ensure the personal email address in your E-services record is accurate and working. The same address is copied into D2L Brightspace so that address is the one most instructors will use. An easy way to test that your address is working and accepting messages from DCTC is to send yourself a message from within D2L Brightspace. You should expect to receive at least one message each week from the college when classes are in session.
It is a good practice to check your e-mail account once each day during the work week. That is especially important if an instructor uses e-mail to communicate with students.
