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:

Technical support and user accounts are maintained by Computer Services. For help with ideas on how to leverage the tools of Knight's E-Mail during your class or as a part of the larger curriculum, contact the Faculty Center. We can be reached at 407-823-3544 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

College of Medicine Engagement is the key to education. In the classroom, I engage my students by establishing a dialogue with them. Instead of simply reciting information, I ask questions. Why is the CDC in Atlanta? Students are surprised to learn that the original goal of the CDC was to eliminate malaria from the southern United St...
College of Arts and Humanities When I arrived at UCF eleven years ago I believed my primary role as an educator was to prepare students for a profession. My teaching philosophy has greatly changed since then, and my classroom activities and assessments reflect a new and evolving belief that I should learn from my students and that I have a res...
