Information Technology Services (ITS) provides all active students with an email account in a system called SUMail. SUMail is managed by the university and utilizes Microsoft's Office 365 email service. The SU email policy requires that all official university e-mail communications be sent to your @syr.edu email address.
SUmail uses the same password that you set up for your NetID. To manage your NetID, including passwords management, activation and two-factor authentication, visit http://netid.syr.edu.

Newly matriculated students are assigned an official email address usually within a few days after they have submitted their Admissions Acceptance Form (undergraduate) or the Intent to Register Form (graduate, Law), paid tuition deposit, been confirmed as matriculated and have activated their NetID. First-time non-matriculated students (e.g. University College) are assigned an official email address usually within a day after they have submitted their registration.
