* Please note that it can take up to
2 business days after you have registered
for your email account to be created and activated. 

Getting Started

If this is your first time accessing your student email account, you will need to follow the steps below to retrieve your User ID and sign in to your student email account and windows login for campus lab computers.

  1. First, retrieve your Student Login/User ID. (A new browser window will be opened.)
  2. Student email is accessed from the following location: http://outlook.com/student.laniertech.edu
    You will be directed to the email login screen (see screenshot below).
  3. Enter your complete student email address provided by the college and your password on the login screen to sign in. Your email address is the Student Login you retrieved in step 1 followed by @student.laniertech.edu.  For example: jdoe@student.laniertech.edu
  4. Your default password will be your birthday in the form of MMDDYYYY. For example, January 1st, 1972 would be: 01011972. Type your password in the Password field and then click the "Sign In" button.

Why don't I see all of my emails?

Outlook 365 uses a focused mailbox as the default inbox view. Focused Inbox separates your inbox into two tabs - Focused and Other. Your most important emails are on the Focused tab while the rest remain easily accessible - but out of the way - on the Other tab.

What if I want to turn off Focused Inbox?

  1. Select the gear icon near the top right of page > Display settings > Focused Inbox.
  2. Under When email is received, select Don't sort messages.
  3. Click OK.
For instructions on how to turn off Focused Inbox in other email software/apps view Microsoft's support article Turn off Focused Inbox.
