The official email system for UCF students is Knight's E-Mail. As of Fall 2009, all students are required to use Knight's E-Mail. External email addresses at places such as Yahoo, Google, AOL and others will not be used when university emails are sent. Students will need Knight's E-Mail to read all emails having to do with advising, class registration, financial aid, or Webcourses. All communication from faculty members and their classes also come through Knight's E-Mail.
Knight's E-Mail is also available to faculty. Faculty are still encouraged to use their @ucf.edu Outlook Exchange account (which is created from within the faculty member's department). Students sign up for Knight's E-Mail individually, and are allowed to keep their accounts after they leave UCF.
Knight's E-Mail includes a full e-mail system, including sub-folders and mail forwarding to and from Knight's E-Mail, as well as an ability to check email from a mobile phone. There are numerous other features besides email that make Knight's E-Mail an advantageous tool for student organization. These features also enhance learning and studying opportunities:
