BSCTC is Upgrading Student Email!

In order to better serve students, BSCTC is changing email services to Microsoft O365 for Education. On Monday, July 16, 2012, BSCTC student mailbox(es) will be moved to O365. Students may experience some email issues on July 16th as BSCTC makes the changes.

Accessing Your Email

The website for student email is now https://outlook.com/kctcs.edu Starting on Monday, July 16, 2012
students may also reach that link by clicking on the Email link at the top of the college website and choosing Student Email on the following page.

Mailbox Size has Increased

Student mailbox size has increased! Students will get a warning that the mailbox is almost full at 900 MB. Students will be prohibited from sending messages when 950 MB is reached. At 1 GB, students will be prohibited from sending and receiving email.

Mobile Setup

If students have setup their mobile phone with the KCTCS email system prior to being moved to O365, they will now need to setup the phone to work with O365. The directions can be found at http://help.outlook.com/en-us/140/dd936215.aspx.

Password Reset

The password reset functionality within O365 will not work to reset your KCTCS network password. Students may want to enroll in the password reset portal in order to reset your password https://pwreset.kctcs.edu. Students need to enroll before their password expires. This tool will allow students to change or reset their KCTCS password. Students can also use the User Account Center located at http://kctcs.edu/Students/User_Account_Center .

Questions?

Students with any questions regarding the email changes may contact BSCTCs IT help desk between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday Friday. bs-helpdesk@kctcs.edu
