Students must be registered before obtaining a campus email account. All registered CSUSM students receive an email address. A student username is composed of the first 5 letters of your last name, followed by three auto-generated digits, then "@cougars.csusm.edu." If your last name has less than 5 letters, then your entire last name will be used, followed by three auto-generated digits. Examples of usernames include email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.
