Student E-mail

GSW has set up an email account for every enrolled student. This address will serve as an official means for faculty and staff to contact students. Students are expected to check their official GSW email on a frequent and consistent basis and recognize that certain communication may be time-critical.

Please note: GSW policy is to keep student email accounts active up to one year. Your email account will be suspended one year after the starting date of the last semester you attended classes at GSW.

By using your email account, you agree to the GSW Email Policy.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you're having trouble with your account, here are a few tips that may help you out.

  • In the "Username" field, make sure you input just your username - the part of your GSW email address before the '@' symbol.
  • Make sure you're trying to log in using the proper web interface at http://mail.radar.gsw.edu/ -- you can also get there from the GSW Main Page by selecting "Student Email Login" from the "Community Links" drop-down box.
  • Make sure cookies are turned on in your browser settings.
  • Try using your default password - the last 6 digits of your GSW ID#.

If you still have problems, feel free to email the System Administrator from an alternate email address, or call 229-931-2074 and provide your email address, name, and a description of the problem. DO NOT provide your password or GSW ID# over email.
