Student BroncoMail Accounts
Student Email Overview
Each matriculated student at Boise State University is assigned a BroncoMail account upon their acceptance to the University. This secure account is used by faculty and staff to officially communicate with students. Email messages sent through Canvas go to students’ official BroncoMail account. The format of a student BroncoMail address is email@example.com.
Email as Primary Communication
Students who are not fully familiar with BroncoMail may not realize that email is the primary communication tool the University uses and may forget to log in and check their accounts. You can help educate students on the use of their BroncoMail accounts by including a statement in your syllabus that outlines expectations for email usage. For example, here is a statement you can include.
Example Syllabus Statement
“BroncoMail is the official communication channel through which all university business is conducted. It is expected that you access and read university communications on a regular basis. For more information see the University Policy on Student Email Communications (Policy 2280).”
