Claflin University Employee E-mail
The university offers two ways for its employees to check their Claflin e-mail. You can access your e-mail through the Claflin website or by using Microsoft Outlook. To use Microsoft Outlook, you need to be logged on to your office computer. We would prefer that you not use Microsoft Outlook on another users system. Access your e-mail via the website from off campus or whenever Microsoft Outlook is not functioning to it fullest capacity.
How to change your password
You may change your password at anytime by logging onto a campus computer and pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL, then choosing “Change Password” from the menu. View the password guidelines for more information.
