Required Student E-mail Address Policy
The University of Georgia
In accordance with University of Georgia policy, every student is required to have an e-mail address to which official University communications can be sent. It has been determined that, in the best interest of effective communications management, this address must reside on the University-maintained UGAMail e-mail system.
Whenever a student creates a MyID, an UGAMail e-mail account is automatically created. Some students may elect to forward their e-mail to an address different from their official UGAMail account. Any student who elects to forward UGAMail e-mail to a different e-mail address assumes full responsibility for reading e-mail at the forwarded location.
Students are expected to check their University e-mail account, or the account to which their University e-mail is forwarded, at least once a week.
It should be noted that this policy affects the e-mail address listed in the UGA Online Phonebook. All students who have not elected to restrict directory information will have their UGAMail e-mail address listed in the online directory.
