Email Resources

As a student, you are assigned a Gmail account though the University of Alaska.

Your email address: your UA

Your password: your UA password (the same one you use for Blackboard)

All official university communication is delivered through your UA Gmail account! 

Faculty members are required to send information to students via their university Gmail.  Therefore if you do not wish to check your student UA Gmail account regularly, it is imperative that you forward it to another email address. 

Handout: How to change your UA username and password, access Blackboard, and check and forward your university email.
