Student Email

Westchester Community College considers WCC’s student email system as an official means of communication. WCC will use the system to notify students of college-related business and to share general information of importance to students. To ensure the effectiveness of the email system, the following conditions are set forth:

  • The College will consider students to be informed and in receipt of correspondence sent to their WCC email account.
  • WCC will direct official communications to students’ WCC email accounts. Students are responsible for reading their college email on a regular basis and for recognizing that certain communications are time sensitive.
  • Students who choose to have the WCC email forwarded to a personal account do so at their own risk. The College is not responsible for any difficulties that may occur in the proper or timely transmission of, or access to, WCC email forwarded to a personal email account. Any such problems will not absolve a student of their responsibilities to know and comply with the content of official email communications sent to the student’s WCC email account.
  • Access to and use of the WCC student email system is considered a critical service at the College. The WCC Code of Conduct for Users of College Computer Systems applies to the student email system. The College reserves the right to immediately withdraw access and use of student email when there is reason to believe that violations of the Code of Conduct have occurred. In such cases, the alleged violation will be referred to the Dean of Student Life for further investigation and adjudication under the College’s Conduct Regulation procedures.
  • Students with a disability who are unable to access their email account may request support from the Office for Students with Disabilities.
  • Communication via the WCC student email system is subject to the same public information, privacy, and records retention laws as other forms of communication. Redirecting of WCC email by students to outside accounts and the sharing of messages with third parties may negate the privacy protection rights afforded to the College.

The Code of Conduct for Users of College Computer Systems contains information about use of computers at WCC.

Develop a plan for organizing your paper and electronic files.

For paper files, decide how you want to keep track of class handouts, assignments you are working on, and materials you’ll need to study.

  • What will you use for note-taking?
  • How will you know what notes you need for each test?
  • How will you keep materials for each class separate and organized, so you can easily access what you need when you need it?
  • When will you assess how your system is working?

For electronic files, consider how you will file and save your work.

  • Flash drives are a convenient way to save your electronic files because they are portable and can be used in many electronic devices. One downside of flash drives is that they can corrupt making the files inaccessible.  With this in mind, using your securing Westchester Community College One Drive account is highly recommended as your online storage solution.
