Student Email and Text
Office 365 is the official, College-provided electronic mail service used to notify students of important College information. To avoid missing communications from Seminole State College, students must activate their student email account, check it regularly and, if necessary, act on messages in a timely fashion. Office 365 is available to students once they register for classes, at which point no communication will be made to any other email address.
Messages sent to your Office 365 account may be forwarded to another email account, but students do so at their own risk. The College cannot provide technical support if problems such as lost or missing messages arise as the result of forwarding emails outside of Office 365. Students are responsible for the content of College communications sent to their Office 365 address. While messages in Office 365 can be forwarded, all email messages from a student to the College and his or her professors must be sent from the student's Office 365 account. By using your Office 365 account, you agree to these conditions.
Seminole State Text is the College's messaging service to keep students informed about their records, important deadlines and campus emergencies. Messages sent via Seminole State Text include, but are not limited to, admissions alerts, financial aid notices, important deadlines, tuition due dates, registration notices, enrollment appointments and campus alerts. A MySeminoleState username, password and a cell phone number are required to sign up and receive text messages. Standard text messaging rates may apply.
Seminole State Text is not an alternative, but a supplement to Office 365. Students are responsible for checking their student email accounts regularly.
