All students are expected to have an email account at which they can reliably receive communications from their instructors. Students are responsible for any email communications that are missed due to Spam filtering or whitelisting services.

The iSchool strongly discourages the use of “waitlisting” services. Should students choose to use such services, they do so at their own risk and are responsible for any missed communications.

In cases where instructors are unable to reliably communicate with a student at a specific email address, the student may be asked to activate their SJSU Student Email account and use it for all class-related communications.

All SJSU students are automatically issued an SJSU Student Email account about 45 days before their first semester begins. Students may then activate and begin using their SJSU Student Email account. Additional information is available at:
