Email Use at UMD and Set-Up Information
It is important that you check your UMD email account on a regular basis, even prior to attending Advisement & Registration. Why? University-assigned student email accounts are the University's official means of communication. You are therefore responsible for all information sent to your UMD email account. The Office of Financial Aid will soon begin sending emails to students regarding additional information or documentation needed to award financial aid.
Check your UMD email account! 48 hours after you initiate your internet account, you can begin checking your email. Go to the UMD homepage at http://www.d.umn.edu and click on "Email." Log in using your internet ID and password. Some incoming UMD students will find that their UMD email is being directed to a different campus of the University of Minnesota. This is usually the result of applications for admission being made to multiple campuses or because College in the Schools classes have been taken through another campus. All University email is directed to the first account that was opened within the University of Minnesota system.
Please confirm where your e-mail is being directed or make changes by visiting: http://www.umn.edu/myaccount Click 'Set E-mail Forwarding and Autoreply' (under the 'Manage Your E-mail' header). If you change your email forwarding, there may be a delay of up to an hour before it takes effect.
