Subscribing to Students Email Listservs & Checking Your Email

Faculty, staff and students use email to communicate class information, registration information, and much more. Therefore, we require you to:

  1. Establish your UW NetID (open your University of Washington e-mail account) BEFORE starting your studies, and
  2. Download instructions for how to subscribe to a group e-mail list for all students in your degree program. Upon return to the University from On-Leave status, re-subscription to the appropriate student email list may be required.
  3. Check your email 2-3 times a week to ensure that you are not missing important announcements or communication from your instructors.

If you would like to see messages posted to the list that you may have missed, you must access the list archives. To do so, you must first go to the main page of your listserv (replacing listserv with the name of your mailing list (bsn1yr, etc.):

Log in with your UW NetID and on the main page under the "About" section should be the listserv's monthly archives.

We also recommend that you participate in e-mail training and set up your computer so that you can connect to the UW from home.
