After spending two hours trying to find how to access my student email and finding no complete answers in help I thought this might help others.
When you enrol in a class with student services, your email address is printed in the Student Schedule Box on the A4 piece of paper you are given confirming your enrollment.
You can log into the Student Portal and click on the "STUDENT EMAIL" link at the very bottom of the page but this just redirects you to Gmail.
It is far simpler to open a web browser ( eg. Chrome, FireFox, Explorer) on your computer and go to www.gmail.com
DO NOT CLICK CREATE ACCOUNT. Your account has already been created.
Click on the SIGN IN Button.
Enter your student email eg Firstname.Lastname1234@DavisTech.Edu.
Your Email password is the same as the password you set for the Student Portal.
