Official university-assigned email accounts are the only ones the university uses for its email communications with CU Denver students. Faculty and administration will use your official CU Denver address when corresponding with you by email. We don’t send university messages to other email accounts like Gmail or Yahoo.
Students are responsible for reading emails received from CU Denver.
This policy accomplishes two things.
