Student Email Instructions
Microsoft Office 365 for education is here!
We are proud to present Office 365 for education. With Office 365, you will now have two accounts:
Office 365 account—access your school email. Use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to access your school email at https://www.outlook.com/csustudent.
Personal Microsoft account—access SkyDrive and Messenger. Use the same user name and password to access this account that was used to access Live@edu by signing into SkyDrive (https://skydrive.live.com). Note that Charleston Southern University no longer administers this account so we cannot reset the password.Use https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx to reset the password for your personal account after the upgrade.
