Student Responsibility for Monitoring TC Email Account

Owner: Computing & Information Services

Statement regarding College expectation that students will monitor their email.

Teachers College has established email as the official means of communication with students.  Students are required to activate and use the email address provided by the College. Information on how to do that is located here.

Teachers College expects that every student will receive email at his or her Teachers College email address and will read email frequently and consistently. A student’s failure to receive and read College communications in a timely manner does not absolve that student from knowing and complying with the content of such communications. Students may redirect (auto-forward) email sent to their Teachers College email address to another email address. However, students who redirect email from their official College email address to another address do so at their own risk. If email is lost as a result of forwarding, it does not absolve the student from the responsibilities associated with communications sent to their official University email address.
