Email Update

Jun.12, 2015

EMAIL ACCESS CHANGE

The college is no longer going to communicate with students using their personal email addresses; all communications will be through college-provided email addresses. We have eased into this policy over a two-year period, and we have used personal email addresses in the past.  We are no longer allowing the use of those addresses, so please be advised that all official college communications will go through your college email address.

If you have not yet activated your MyWCC account and have not set up your college email address, please click here for directions on How to Activate Your MyWCC Login.  The college expects each student to activate their MyWCC account and check their official emails on a frequent basis. Do not redirect your emails to another account; the college will not be responsible for emails sent to non-WCC email accounts. Email forwarding does not excuse students from the responsibilities associated with receiving and communicating via our official WCC email addresses.

For students who would like to have mobile phone or tablet access to their college email, please following the instructions by clicking on the How to Access our WCC Email link in MyWCC. The college maintains the right to access and examine college computer systems and networks and all information that is stored or transmitted through these systems and networks, including all email and all website visits. For more details on the college’s email policy, click here.
