Students’ Official University Email

It is the policy of the University at Albany that email is an official means of communication with students. This policy pertains to all students and stipulates that the University can convey relevant academic and administrative information to targeted student populations using their UAlbany email account.

Students are responsible for checking their email account regularly so as not to miss important, time-sensitive, University communications. The full policy is available at
