Student Email

It is important to keep your personal email address up to date with the college. All college email sent to your college email address, which is the same as your college username account, is forwarded to your personal email address.  If you need to update your personal email address, please contact the Registrar’s Office at registrarsoffice@esc.edu.

The student email address/account username you receive upon admission to the college will forward all email, sent to this address, to your personal email address. On the first day of the first semester at the college you will receive an Office365 license. Once your license is active, if you would like to request your email forwarding to your personal email be suspended, in order to use your college email account in the MyESC portal or using Microsoft Outlook available with Office365, contact the IT Service Desk and submit an incident.  

If you have elected to suspend mail forwarding to your personal email address and you have received notification regarding your Office 365 license, please click the following button to go directly to your O365 inbox. (Login required)

Take me to my O365 email

If this is your first time using your college email please see below for information on your ESC email account and the options you have to configure it.

By default, your ESC email is set up as a forwarding account.

What this means is that anything sent to your student email address (your_username###@esc.edu) will automatically be forwarded to your personal email address that we have on file. This means that you do not have an actual "mailbox" on our system by default, and therefore cannot send outgoing mail from your ESC email address or check your college email through MyESC.

However, your student email address can still be provided for the purpose of things such as student discounts -- you will just pick up the confirmation email in your personal email inbox.

ESC does not retain any record of emails that are sent to you through your forwarding account.

Microsoft Office 365 - Outlook Email

As an alternative to the email forwarding account,the college also offers a full-scale email service for students through Microsoft Office 365. Office365 becomes available on the first day of the first semester you begin taking classes. This email has a dedicated inbox from which you can send and receive emails via your college email account. The address is the same as the forwarding email address (e.g firstname_lastname### @esc.edu). You will need to enable the dedicated email service and disable the email forwarding.

NOTICE: The ability to update certain account information such as email address or mailing address is temporarily unavailable due to system updates. If you have any issues or questions please contact the Registrar's office directly for assistance at 800-847-3000 or registrarsoffice@esc.edu

Once enabled, you may check your college email from MyESC, from your Office365 Outlook account on the web at portal.office365.com using your student email address (college username). You will have access to your email through Office 365 until your license expires (1 year after the start of your last semester).
