SUNY Plattsburgh's E-Mail Policy

Your Electronic Mail Account is an official mode of communication.

SUNY Plattsburgh considers both the United States Postal service and the College's e-mail system official modes of communication. Electronic mail accounts are assigned to all staff and students using the following formats:

  • Faculty/Staff Addresses - employeeusername@plattsburgh.edu
  • Student Addresses - studentusername@mail.plattsburgh.edu

The Policy

The College will consider employees and students to be duly informed and in receipt of notifications and correspondences sent by an any college administrator, staff, or faculty that are 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. Individuals may choose to have their @plattsburgh.edu or their @mail.plattsburgh.edu e-mail accounts forwarded to an off-campus account. Such individuals, however, are responsible for managing their disk quota such that there is room for new mail to arrive and for forwarding their Plattsburgh e-mail account to a functioning alternative e-mail address. The College is not responsible for delivery problems to non-official e-mail accounts.
