Students are required to use their Lourdes University email accounts for email communication with the University faculty and staff. If a student uses another email account to submit an assignment, the student does so at her or his own risk. Should the document fail to arrive for whatever reason, the student is accountable for a missing assignment, subject to the terms of the individual instructor’s syllabus. Under no circumstances should faculty or staff be transmitting FERPA-protected information to students via any email account other than the student’s Lourdes email account. Student email accounts will be kept for two years after the student takes his/her last course.

If a student returns to Lourdes after stopping out for two years, their email account will be recreated at that time. Students access email via logging into the Lourdes Portal.

Lourdes students now use an email system called Office 365.
