When you create your CSU eID, you are assigned a Google Apps email account

Your new CSU email address is first.last@rams.colostate.edu. Log in to your @Rams account using your eID (ename and epassword) at mail.rams.colostate.edu.

CSU offices will email critical communications to your @Rams account after you’re admitted

Check your @Rams account regularly (at least weekly) for communications such as financial aid instructions and status updates, orientation and registration information, notification that your transfer evaluation is complete, housing assignments, and contact from academic departments and other CSU offices.

You are responsible for any communications or action items sent to your attention via your @Rams account. If you are not going to be able to check this account regularly, consider setting up forwarding rules to an account you check more frequently.

You can forward your @Rams email to another account

Follow these forwarding instructions and be sure to create settings that archive communications in your @Rams account for later reference if needed.
