Having an email account is a prerequisite for course registration and all routine administrative matters at the Technion. The account will be used by the student throughout the course of his/her studies at the Technion. Technion official messages are sent to this e-mail and are treated as a registered letter sent to the student's address.
The account will be used by the student through all degree studies in the Technion, and will also be maintained  after graduation (subject to the agreement with the service provider).

Technion computer use is subject to the Technion resource usage regulations.
