If you prefer to use your personal email address to receive email from your professors and other faculty, you can set your student email account to forward all email to a secondary account. In order to do this, you need to login to your account at Gmail.com. Login with your full email address and password. Once logged in:

• Click the cogwheel icon in the top right of your inbox screen and go to Settings.

• Then click the tab at the top that says Forwarding and IMAP/POP

• At the top it has a button that says "Add forwarding address"

• Enter your alternate email there and save

All email should then be sent to that email address. Keep in mind, all email is just forwarded. If you reply to a forwarded email, it will send from your secondary email address that it was forwarded to.
