|Using the CAC Student E-mail|
Central Arizona College Student E-mail
All Central Arizona College students have a Central Arizona College Domain Account which includes a Student E-mail Account. The e-mail address is assigned to the student when the student is admitted to CAC and matches the legal name on the student records. With this account each student receives 50 gigabytes of storage space and access to Microsoft Office 365.
The CAC Student E-mail Server is located at http://portal.office.com.
If you experience difficulty logging in to your CAC Student E-mail, please check your browser settings. The most frequent causes of e-mail difficulty are blocked cookies, pop-up blockers and internet security settings which are set too high.
The domain/username for the student e-mail accounts is firstname.lastname@example.org. For example: email@example.com. The initial password is based on your birthdate in MMDDYYYY format - 8 numbers are required. Example: A person born on March 15, 1985 would have an initial e-mail password of 03151985. Changing your password at initial login is strongly encouraged.
Important: Students enrolled in classes which use the CAC Blackboard Learning System are required to use their Central Arizona College Student E-mail Account as part of their online classes.
