Migration of student email accounts to Microsoft's Office 365 email
Madison College moved student email to a “cloud” offering: Office365. This new email platform will benefit users by offering greater flexibility and reliability, anywhere access of email and attachments from virtually any mobile device, easier management of information, and significant increased email storage capacity for users.
What was done?
Madison College migrated our current student email to a “cloud” offering: Office365 (hosted by Microsoft). If you are a returning student, the look and feel of your email should not change significantly from the previous OWA student email system.
What are the benefits for students?
When did this occur?
Email migrations were begun throughout the summer and fall 2013. Students were notified twice during this migration period: once when your email was scheduled to start the migration process and once when your email had been completely migrated.
What is the impact to students?
Existing email accounts were moved. Students keep their same email address and had their saved emails moved to the new platform. Any new students automatically have new accounts created when they activate their accounts.
How and Where do I login?

Personal Subscriptions to Office 365
Students, faculty and staff may purchase software through Microsoft at a discount which is also called Office 365, but includes a personal subscription to Office programs including Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, and more. More information about software discounts
When working with a personal subscription to Office 365 or Windows Live Hotmail, and your college student email accounts at the exact same time, it's best to use them in separate browsers. Otherwise, logout of one account, then login to the other.
