E-mailing Your Class

You will need the following information:

  • Subject abbreviation
  • Course number
  • Section number of the course
  • Term abbreviation

Let's suppose you want to e-mail your Biology 301 class, section 01, in the Fall 2014-2015 term. The e-mail address would be BIOL30101_510@LIST.SLU.EDU

In breaking down that e-mail list, the course abbreviation is BIOL:


The course number is 301:


The section is number 01:


And the abbreviation for Fall 2014-2015 is _510:


If your course does not have an abbreviation that is four characters in length, such as SOC110 or HR293, then you must add dashes within the course abbreviation to "lengthen" them to four characters.

For example, the SOC110 course, that is section 01, would read as The "-" takes the place of the fourth character in the e-mail.

The HR293 course, section 02, would read as In this case, two "-" are needed to lengthen the abbreviation to four characters.

The term abbreviation in your class e-mail is an underscore _ followed by the last 3 digits of the appropriate class term shown below.

The full 2014-2015 academic year has the following terms:

  • _500 Summer 2014
  • _510 Fall 2014
  • _515 School of Medicine Academic Year 2014-2015
  • _520 Spring 2015
  • _560 CEU Academic Year 2014-2015

Once you have created your e-mail name, you can e-mail your class from your Google Apps e-mail account.
