Outlook 365 is Microsoft's cloud-based email service and is used by Baylor as its email platform.
Every member of the Baylor community is issued a Baylor email address. This address (e.g., Betty_Baylor1@baylor.edu) serves as an official communication channel for the university. All students, staff, and faculty are expected to monitor their Baylor Outlook-based email account. You can access your Baylor email account at outlook.office.com
Baylor students are issued an Outlook-based alumni email account as they make progress toward their graduation from the university. This email account (e.g., Betty_Baylor1@alumni.baylor.edu) enables alumni to continue to represent their affiliation with Baylor after they graduate. This is a completely new email account, which means that messages with a student's email account will not appear in their alumni email account.
