Consolidating Emails into a Single Email Account

We understand that many of our faculty and staff have two separate email accounts: one linked with Banner and another provided by the University. To ensure you receive all important college-related emails in one place, we offer support to set up email forwarding between these two accounts. This ensures that no critical communication is missed, regardless of whether it's sent to your Banner or University email.

We help set up email forwarding for new faculty and staff members when they join, but we've noticed not everyone completes this process. If you haven't activated email forwarding yet, please begin with the following steps to get started. This service is all about ensuring you're always up to date with college updates and information.
