What's the external e-mail disclaimer?

External sender e-mail disclaimer

The external e-mail disclaimer makes it easy to recognize messages sent from non-college e-mail addresses. Always use caution when opening emails from unknown, unexpected, or external senders.

If you're unsure about a suspicious e-mail, or believe your account might be compromised in any way, contact the IT Service Desk immediately.

How long do I get to keep my Mohawk email account?

Current Mohawk College students will retain access to their email accounts and MyMohawk for one year after the date of their last class. If a student re-enrols at a later date their original email account will be restored and again remain accessible until one year after the date of their last class.
