On June 21, 2023, we will be switching current Castleton, Northern Vermont University, and Vermont Tech students, faculty, and staff to new VermontState.edu email addresses. This FAQ is provided to answer any questions users might have about the change.
What is my new email address?
If you are faculty or staff, you have two new email aliases: username@VermontState.edu (replace username with your VSC username, e.g. abc01234) and Firstname.Lastname@VermontState.edu. Your primary email address will be the Firstname.Lastname@VermontState.edu, meaning people who receive your emails will see that as the From sender email address.
If you are a student, your new email address will be username@VermontState.edu (replace username with your VSC username, e.g. abc01234).
What is an alias email address?
An alias is any email address you have in addition to your primary email address. Your primary email address is the one people who receive your emails will see as the from sender address. Emails sent to your alias email addresses will come directly into your email inbox. For example, everyone at the Vermont State Colleges receives email@example.com as an alias email address (replace username with your VSC username, e.g. abc01234).
Will my old email address(es) go away?
For the most part, you will not lose any old alias email addresses. People can still send you email to your old email address and it will appear in your inbox.
Email extensions that are staying are: @vsc.edu, @castleton.edu, @csc.vsc.edu, @jsc.vsc.edu, @lsc.vsc.edu, @nvu.vsc.edu, @vtc.edu, @vtc.vsc.edu.
The one exception is @northernvermont.edu email addresses will be going away sometime in 2024. If you used a @northernvermont.edu email address when you registered at other websites (e.g. outside of the VSC, like LinkedIn or Cigna), you will need to change the email address to continue receiving communication. If you used that email address as the username on the account, that will need to be updated, too.
