ASU Email

Because you are an instructor with Angelo State University, you were given an ASU email address. This address is your username for Ramport and Blackboard with “@angelo.edu” at the end.

If students email you from your Blackboard course, this email will go to your ASU address. ASU will also send you notifications such as maintenance times for Blackboard, Ramport, and other important information.

You may provide a rule in your inbox to auto-forward all ASU emails to your institution email. To do this, follow these steps.
