Important Information: Changes to Goodwin Student Emails



Goodwin College is excited to announce that student email will be moving to Microsoft’s Office 365 in the coming weeks. This will allow for greater availability and versatility in using email and the collaboration features of Office 365. The move to Office 365 will be done in stages and is expected to be completed by October 1, 2014. As each user is moved, the current email login page will no longer allow you access, and you will receive an Information Page after you have entered in your User ID and Password.
