Student News

CardMail Now Available

CardMail, UofL's new e-mail service for students, is now available.  If you missed yesterday's training and information session, all the information you need is on the law school's Student Computing page under the new CardMail section.

University IT has indicated that May 2011, with no specific date, is the deadline for students to migrate from GroupWise to CardMail.  Even students graduating this semester are encouraged to migrate, rather than allow their UofL e-mail accounts to close, as doing so will ensure you still have a University account through the summer.
