Everyone at UAA gets an email account where you will receive official communications from the University. Everyone can choose email nicknames (up to 3). Students can forward their UAA email to a personal email address.
Employee email migration to Google Apps
On April 14th of this year UA President Johnsen announced his desire that all UA campuses begin to use Google Apps for Education for email and calendaring. Accordingly all staff and faculty will have their UAA Exchange account migrated to Google Apps. This migration is scheduled to begin on June 26th. Please visit the Google Apps page for full details, timelines, FAQs, known issues, and other resources.
Google Apps @ UA
Google Apps for Education provides cloud-based online collaboration tools from Google's suite of apps. These include Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar, Contacts, and many others.
Students: Instructors and staff will use your UA email to send you official information about your courses and registration. You will need to read your UA email frequently.
Employees: Will receive official memorandums and benefits information at their UA email. Employees are required to read their UA email on UA systems. For legal reasons, employees will not forward their email to personal accounts.
