Whenever you create a MyID, a UGA Mail email account is automatically created. Some students may elect to forward their email to an address different from their official UGA Mail account.
Any student who elects to forward UGA Mail email to a different email address assumes full responsibility for reading the email at the forwarded location.
Students are expected to check their University email account or the account to which their University email is forwarded, at least once a week.
It should be noted that this policy affects the email address listed in the UGA Online Phonebook. All students who have not elected to restrict directory information will have their UGA Mail email address listed in the online directory.
