Activate your Islander e-mail account

It's how Islanders communicate!

Your Islander student e-mail address serves as a critical component of our University’s ability to communicate with you. Via this e-mail address, you will receive official University correspondence, updates, billing notifications, and emergency announcements (in cases of a campus emergency).

If/when you register for an Orientation program, a confirmation will be sent to your Islander e-mail address. As a result, it is very important to activate your account prior to registration so that you may receive these materials.
