ASU e-mail is an official means of communication among ASU’s students, faculty, and staff. Students are expected to ensure that e-mail is accessed, read, and acted upon in a timely fashion. Students bear the responsibility of missed messages and should check their ASU-assigned e-mail on a regular basis.
The ASU University Technology Office assigns an @asu.edu e-mail at the point of the student’s application for admission to ASU.
Note: Having e-mail redirected does not change the individual’s responsibility for reading and responding to official communications sent to the ASU e-mail address. Information and warnings about forwarding are available at The Mailbox on ASU’s Information Technology Web site.
If the student wishes to prevent the release of the @asu.edu e-mail address, in addition to other directory information, he or she should obtain, complete, and submit a Withhold Directory Information Request form, which is available online.
To begin the process of creating an ASU e-mail address, see the ASURITE Activation & Service Management Web page.
For information regarding @asu.edu mailbox capacity, see The Mailbox.
For information regarding security and risks associated with e-mail, see the Computer Security Web page.
For information regarding SPAM filter service and mass e-mail messages, see The Mailbox Resources and Info Web page.
