E-Mail Services for Students

The AU-sponsored Gmail service is available to all students, who are not also in a faculty or staff position at the university. The AU-sponsored Gmail address takes the form of username@student.american.edu. You can access your e-mail in a variety of ways, which are listed below.

Be sure to regularly monitor what is sent to this address, as many important announcements, such as messages from your instructor and the Registrar, will only be sent to this address.

E-Mail Options

  • Accessing your e-mail through the web at https://www.gmail.com. Your username should be in the format username@student.american.edu, when logging in.
  • Accessing your e-mail through a mobile device.
  • Using an IMAP client, such as Mac Mail or Outlook. You can search our online Knowledge Base to locate the necessary instructions.
