E-Mail

Plattsburgh State University of New York considers the college's e-mail system, e.g. employee's username@plattsburgh.edu or student's username@plattsburgh.edu, along with the United States Postal Service, an official means of communication. The college will consider employees and students to be duly informed and in receipt of notifications and correspondences sent by an college administrator, staff, or faculty delivered to an employee's or a student's college e-mail account.  It is recommended that employees and students frequently access their college assigned e-mail account for official information. 

What does this policy mean to you?

The college administrative offices, staff, and faculty will be using the college's e-mail system as an official means of communication with you. This will allow campus offices to share important information more quickly and directly.  As such, it is your responsibility to check your Plattsburgh e- mail account
regularly.

What happens if I don't read my Plattsburgh e-mail or my preferred e-mail?

You risk the consequences of missing important datelines and information about registration, financial aid, etc.   College offices will hold you responsible for all e-mail communications/notifications sent to you

Is e-mail the only form of communication there will be between College offices and students?
 

No, selected information will continue to be sent via regular mail. However, College offices will be using e-mail frequently as a means of communication, so it is to your benefit to check your e-mail.
