Your SU email username is your NetID@syr.edu and the password is the same that you use to log onto a campus computer or to sign into Myslice and Blackboard.
The University expects students to receive, read, and respond to emails in a timely manner; students should, therefore, check their email daily. The failure to do so does not absolve the student from knowing and complying with the content of any university-related communications.
While students are allowed to redirect email from their official University email address to another address (e.g. @hotmail.com, @gmail.com), they do so at their own risk. The University is not responsible for the handling of email by other service providers. Having email redirected does not absolve students from knowing and complying with the content of the communication sent to their official University email address.
