Class Email List

Class email lists enable you to send announcements easily to everyone associated with your class. When you register for Email Announcement Lists, University IT creates an e-mail distribution list of all your students (along with three other email lists described below). This student list is kept up-to-date automatically, using current enrollment data from the Registrar, so you won’t have to subscribe or unsubscribe students as they add or drop the class. Please note that students’ "" email addresses are the ones used for University IT class email lists. Students who use another account as a primary email address will need to forward the address to the preferred address using StanfordYou.

Following are the lists included with University IT Course Support:
