College Use of Email
Email is the official and primary internal communication method of Daytona State College. Employees and admitted students are assigned a Daytona State College email account. This account will serve to act as the primary mechanism for official communication with the College for employees and all registered students. Official College communications to employees and registered students will not be sent to personal email accounts (i.e., AOL, Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo). Communication of protected student record information will not be sent to personal email accounts at any time regardless of an individual's registration status.
The college has the right to send communications and to expect that communications are received and read in a timely manner. Official email communications are used solely to meet the academic and administrative needs of the campus community. Email is not the sole method for notification of legal action.
Student Email Accounts
Official Daytona State email accounts are assigned to all admitted students. The addresses currently follow this format: firstname_lastname(xxxx)@daytonastate.edu. Once students have registered for classes they are expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis. The College recommends checking email at least once a day. It is the students' responsibility to recognize that certain email communications may be time sensitive.
