UVI Student Email System
January 7, 2014
Happy New Year and Semester!
This communication is to inform all students and the university community, that the request to change the student email address format has been granted. 64%percent of students who responded to the poll seeking student input supported this change.
The rollout of the NEW email service Office 365 will be phased in over the next four weeks. The final cut-over date is February 7, 2014. Returning students will have access to both email addresses until the cut-over is completed. Blackboard and myCampus will utilize the new email address to send email to students. We recommend that all students access their new email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible. You can access your email account through the myCampus portal by going to mycampus.uvi.edu.
Please note, all official communication from the university will be sent to your new email account (email@example.com).
New Students: All new students will be assigned the new email address in Office 365. Your address will be your firstname.lastname@example.org and the default password is the first letter of your first name and the first letter of your last name and the last six digits of your student ID number.
Returning Students: All returning students will be allowed to access their UVIIDemail@example.com accounts until February 7, 2014. Over the next few weeks, we encourage you to forward emails that you want to keep to your new address (firstname.lastname@example.org) as well as update your contacts.
Blackboard: Blackboard will utilize the new email address starting Monday, January 13, 2014.
myCampus: myCampus will utilize the new email address starting Monday, January 13, 2014.
