The official email system for UCF students is Knight's E-Mail. As of Fall 2009, all students are required to use Knight's E-Mail. External email addresses at places such as Yahoo, Google, AOL and others will not be used when university emails are sent. Students will need Knight's E-Mail to read all emails having to do with advising, class registration, financial aid, or Webcourses. All communication from faculty members and their classes also come through Knight's E-Mail.
Knight's E-Mail is also available to faculty. Faculty are still encouraged to use their @ucf.edu Outlook Exchange account (which is created from within the faculty member's department). Students sign up for Knight's E-Mail individually, and are allowed to keep their accounts after they leave UCF.
Knight's E-Mail includes a full e-mail system, including sub-folders and mail forwarding to and from Knight's E-Mail, as well as an ability to check email from a mobile phone. There are numerous other features besides email that make Knight's E-Mail an advantageous tool for student organization. These features also enhance learning and studying opportunities:

College of Arts and Humanities All true education and edification (or Bildung, which nicely captures the meanings of both words) is based on respect, and I am thankful to have consistently scored highest in this category on my student perception of instruction forms. There are several ways that I try to respect my students, perhaps the most im...
College of Sciences Carl Rogers' Humanistic model inspires my teaching philosophy. The university classroom provides the perfect environment for students to develop their potential to grow positively. The university classroom is also a perfect forum to challenge and expand world views and views of "self." The opportunity for student...
