ISU manages official Idaho State University Student Organization email accounts.
  • Organizations need to have email continuity from one semester to the next.
  • If email accounts were set up under an individual's name, the account would be deleted once the individual left ISU or become inaccessible to later student organization members if they could not locate the founding account member.
  • We encourage student organizations to work through the Student Leadership & Engagement Center rather than setting up accounts using non-ISU email addresses.
  • Student organization accounts are set up as delegated email accounts owned by ISU.
    • Note: For more information on delegated accounts, please see this link. 
  • Authorized members are set up as delegates who manage the actual email for that account.
  • The student org leadership should have an idea of what they want their club email and alias to be
