Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access student email and Office 365?

The link for student email is now mail.office365.com. You may need to clear your cache to get to it.

With Office 365, you now have two separate accounts:

1. Office 365 email account.

Use Microsoft Outlook Web App to view and send email from your Galen email account at http://mail.office365.com or https://www.outlook.com/nursing.galencollege.edu using the same user name Galen provided and your password. In Office 365 you will not see our logo, but Galen still administers this account.

2. Personal Microsoft account.

This personal account will give you access to all your existing SkyDrive content, Messenger, and other Microsoft services. You will sign in at https://skydrive.live.com and use the same user name and password to access this account as you do to access your email today. Note that Galen no longer administers this account. As a result, we cannot reset the password for you. You can use https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx to reset the password for your personal account.
