Student Email

The Volunteer State Community College Student Email is hosted by Google Academic. This service is offered free to students while taking classes. This Student Email address is the primary communication method used for campus communication from both the college and your instructors. 

Students are provided with their email address on their acceptance letter. Student email addresses consist of your username@volstate.edu. So if your name was Alan Turing, your username would be something like aturing2, and the email address would be aturing2@volstate.edu. You can recover your user name by using the “Change or Activate Your Password” link on the MyVolState page. Your assigned username is displayed on the same page that you put your new password into. The password to access your email is the same as your My VolState login. The link to access your email is available from the Current Student drop down menu on the main webpage, on the Academics tab in Pride Online and at Google Accounts.

Keep in mind that your email account has been created by the college, you do not need to create a new account on Google’s website. Your student account uses username@volstate.edu NOT username@gmail.com. Your student account will not sync with your personal Gmail account.

If you need help with your email or username please contact the I.T. Helpdesk at (615)230-3302 or 
(888)335-8722 Ext. 3302.
