WSU email policy: Frequently asked questions

What does the new email policy state?

In the Washington State University Executive Policy Manual, under Electronic Communication Policy, BPPM EP #4, it reads:

Official Correspondence with Students: All correspondence regarding academic- and business-related activities will be sent to the student’s official Email account, effective the first day of instruction of the student’s first-enrolled term.  Communication through additional channels is permitted but not mandatory.

When does a student’s preferred email switch to the WSU email?

A new student’s preferred email will automatically default to the WSU email on the first day of the first term in which he or she is enrolled. Students will not have the option of changing their preferred email in myWSU, though their non-WSU email address or addresses will remain on file.
