CSN Email refers to email and other productivity services enabled over the Internet (cloud services). CSN Email includes full downloadable versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneDrive, OneNote, Access, and Publisher applications that run on your PC or MAC desktop or laptop, as well as mobile versions for tablets and phones.
What is your CSN username?
Your username is your NSHEID.
When you log in to GoCSN, Canvas, MyCSN, campus computers, or other CSN systems, you use your NSHE ID. It is a 10-digit NSHE student ID number. To log in to your CSN Email account you need to indicate to Microsoft which email/school you belong to, so you need to include “@student.csn.edu.” So to log in to your CSN Email, your username will be “NSHEID@student.csn.edu”. Use the same password you use to log into GoCSN. Whenever being asked to log in to a system, use your username/NSHEID.
For convenience when communicating with others, CSN provides an email address as an alias to your username. Your email address is “FirstName.LastName@csn.edu,” except in rare cases where a number (e.g., 01) is added to the end. This happens when you have the same name as another student and you are informed about this address when you validate the account. You can find your alias email address using a couple of methods:
- Email your personal account from your CSN account. It will display your email address in your personal account.
- Log in to your email, click your profile picture in the upper right (maybe only your initials), click My Account, and click Personal Details. Your email address will be listed under Contact details.
The ability to forward your student email account to another email address is not available. It is essential to regularly log in and check your CSN Email to find important messages related to Financial Aid, Campus events, and more.
