Student Email and Text
Seminole State College provides a Microsoft Office 365 account for students that includes an @live.seminolestate.edu email address through the Outlook application. This is the College's official student email system and is the only email account the College will use to communicate with you about your student records. Your student email account will be available within 24 hours after your residency status has been determined and you have created your MySeminoleState account.
Once your student email account is available, you are required to log in to the Self Service Password Reset Portal and change your password. Please refer to the first time user instructions for information on how to reset your password and log in.
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.
