Electronic Mail Policy FAQ
What is a non-university provided or approved email service?
Email addresses that end in @greenriver.edu are provided by Green River College to its employees and are the only email addresses approved for use to conduct college business. Email services such as Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail are not provided or approved by the college and are not allowed to be used to conduct college business. When communicating with GRC students, GRC employees should communicate from their GRC @greenriver.edu email account to either the student’s GRC @student.greenriver.edu account or the student’s “Preferred Email” as specified in ctcLink. Employees should not attempt to contact students at any other email address.
When a student successfully registers for a class at GRC, they are provided an GRC student email account ending in @student.greenriver.edu. Official GRC communications will be sent either to the students GRC @student.greenriver.edu email account or to the personal email account that the student has configured as the “Preferred Email Account” in their ctcLink profile. Students should send and receive all official communications from of those two accounts.
What should I do if circumstances arise where a non ufl.edu email address is used in connection with university business (either inadvertently or out of technical necessity)?
Employees shall promptly forward those emails to their @greenriver.edu email address to come into compliance with this policy.
I don't have a GRC email account, how do I get one?
GRC email accounts are automatically generated based on data downloaded from ctcLink. New faculty and staff should contact their supervisor to verify that they have been configured in ctcLink. Students only receive GRC email accounts after they have successfully registered for a class at GRC. If it has been over one full business day since a student successfully registered for a class (i.e., not wait-listed), then please contact the student helpdesk for assistance.

If circumstances arise where a non @greenriver.edu email address is used in connection with college business (either inadvertently or out of technical necessity), employees shall promptly forward those emails to their @greenriver.edu email address to come into compliance with this policy.
