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 2013-2014 term. The e-mail address would be BIOL30101_410@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 2013-2014 is _410:
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 SOCfirstname.lastname@example.org. The "-" takes the place of the fourth character in the e-mail.
The HR293 course, section 02, would read as HRemail@example.com. In this case, two "-" are needed to lengthen the abbreviation to four characters.
The full 2013-2014 academic year has the following terms:
- _400 Summer 2013
- _410 Fall 2013
- _415 School of Medicine Academic Year 2013-2014
- _420 Spring 2014
- _460 CEU Academic Year 2013-2014
Once you have created your e-mail name, you can e-mail your class from your Google Apps e-mail account.
