E-mailing Your Class
You will need the following information:
- Subject abbreviation
- Course number
- Section number of the course
- Term abbreviation
Let's suppose you want to e-mail your Biology 301 class, section 01, in the Fall 2012-2013 term. The e-mail address would be BIOL30101_310@LIST.SLU.EDU
In breaking down that e-mail list, the course abbreviation is BIOL:
The course number is 301:
The section is number 01:
And the abbreviation for Fall 2012-2013 is _310:
If your course does not have an abbreviation that is four characters in length, such as SOC110 or HR293, then you must add dashes within the course abbreviation to "lengthen" them to four characters.
For example, the SOC110 course, that is section 01, would read as SOCemail@example.com. The "-" takes the place of the fourth character in the e-mail.
The HR293 course, section 02, would read as HRfirstname.lastname@example.org. In this case, two "-" are needed to lengthen the abbreviation to four characters.
The full 2012-2013 academic year has the following terms:
- _300 Summer 2012
- _310 Fall 2012
- _315 Fall 2012 School of Medicine
- _320 Spring 2013
- _325 Spring 2012 School of Medicine
- _360 CEU Academic Year 2012-2013
Once you have created your e-mail name, you can e-mail your class from your Google Apps e-mail account.
