All students enrolled at RCC are given a student email address. After registering at RCC you’re issued a student email account. Student email is Google mail and can be accessed via the myRCC single signon. To find out your username and password you will need to review the login directions for the myRCC single signon. When communicating with your faculty and staff at RCC, you are required to use the student email system. Your student email account is your email@example.com at the end (ex. firstname.lastname@example.org). For help getting started, please read our RCC Getting Started with Gmail Guide [PDF].
When emailing faculty and staff at RCC, students should always fill in the subject line and provide their name and course information. Students can set up signature lines in the gmail system. Check out our Getting Started with Gmail Guide [PDF] and for more information on the Gmail system, please visit the Google support site.
