When you register for any class at Marshall – online or traditional – you are automatically assigned a computer account on MUNet. MUNet is the Marshall University computing network. Your computer account provides a username and password for access to the university computer network. Your computer account also provides you with an email address.
If you are an online student, you can request that your MUNet account be mailed to you by calling Marshall University Computing Services at (304) 696-3222 . You can also obtain your email address with your Marshall University username by logging into myMU. Click on the email icon and you will see your address in the upper right corner of the window that opens.
Online course-related email may be sent to your Marshall University email address unless you choose to set a forwarding address at this site: Computing Services Email Delivery Location
You can access your Marshall University email by logging into myMU.
Your online course instructor will most likely use the MUOnLine Blackboard Mail Tool to contact you. To access the Mail Tool, you will need to login to your online course.
Please note that the initial email you may receive from your Marshall University Online instructor may be sent to your Marshall University email account. Please check your Marshall University email account shortly before the new semester begins.
Most instructors e-mail addresses at Marshall University are available in the MU Electronic Phonebook Directory. If you do not see your instructor’s name and e-mail address on this list, you can also do a course search from the Marshall University Online homepage. Information about your course will include the instructor’s email address.
The E-Mail Tool is not the same as your Marshall University email or your personal email accounts. When you log on to a MUOnLine course for the first time, you will see that an email account has automatically been created for you. You can email the instructor and anyone else in the class, but cannot email outside of the class. MUOnLine email stays within the course.
