The University sends official communications to all Tennessee Tech e-mail addresses. All students receive a @students.tntech.edu e-mail address. This address will receive notices about schedules, grade results, billing information, emergency alerts, important deadlines, a daily email newsletter, and all other official university information. It is your responsibility to read and manage this e-mail.
What is New?
Microsoft has upgraded our former Live@edu system to Office 365. Office 365 is now the official e-mail system for students and alumni. Office 365 provides 25GB of e-mail storage. Additionally, you have 7GB of storage and Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more via your free SkyDrive account.
SkyDrive has been automatically configured for all student accounts existing prior to August 14, 2013; this is now maintained as a separate account from your Office 365 email. However, you can use your same TTU email address and password to access SkyDrive’s features. Please note that if you change your password for either account, it will not automatically update or change the other.
For accounts created after August 14, visit skydrive.live.com to sign up for a free account. Remember, this will provide 7GB of cloud storage for your files, as well as access to Microsoft Office products.
As a student, you have access to at least two different accounts.
To access your Eagle Online account:
Reset your password and setup security questions for your account.
Please allow a minimum of five minutes to pass after setting your new password before you attempt to log into your student email account. This allows time for synchronization between TTU and Microsoft servers. Failure to wait may result in error messages.
You can access Office 365 email help from within your email by selecting the Help icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
For help configuring your mobile device to access Office 365, please visit Microsoft at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office365-suite-help/set-up-and-use-office-365-on-your-phone-or-tablet-HA102818686.aspx
