MIX Email Accounts

How to set up a MIX email account?

Every faculty member has a MIX email address. This address is the only one that the Registrar’s office will use to communicate with faculty. These communications include information about students in their courses that require special accommodation and reminders for submitting grades at the end of the semester. For convenience, the MIX email can be set to forward to the faculty member’s HSC email address or any other that they desire. The numbers of emails received on this account are very minimal and thus this will not substantially increase the volume of mail that you receive.
