Free E-Mail Account

College notifications

Delgado Community College students get a free e-mail account available via my.dcc.edu, a new, more robust e-mail and cloud computing system hosted by Microsoft. It is recommended that you use Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher to read your e-mail on or off site since it provides the best performance and compatibility with the College’s Microsoft environment. E-mail accounts are automatically created for students who have registered and secured payment for the semester.

Your e-mail address is created using the first initial of your first name and first five letters of your last name, along with a randomly generated number. For example, an e-mail address created for a student named Carol Smithey would be csmith12345@dcc.edu.
