TigerMail Student E-Mail: LSU Overview

Overview Article

TigerMail Change. Announcement of Switch to LSUMail.

General Information

TigerMail (@tigers.lsu.edu) will be phased out starting during the Summer 2015 semester to allow for a more robust e-mail experience and additional Office 365 services. LSU students and LSU employees will all have LSUMail (@lsu.edu) accounts. Office 365 services will include Office for download, Web Apps, and One Drive.

  • Students will be given the option to "opt in" and transition to LSUMail early starting July 2015. Students can follow the steps here to migrate their data: Email: Transition from TigerMail to LSUMail.
    • Incoming students: after their fee bills for the Fall 2015 semester have been paid AND they have attended at least one class period.
    • Exisiting students: on July 23, 2015
  • All existing student mailboxes that have not already been transitioned will be switched to LSUMail accounts on November 2, 2015. Students will need to follow steps in this article to migrate their data.
  • All existing TigerMail users will retain access to their TigerMail accounts, even after switching to their LSUMail accounts, until February 1, 2016. They will no longer receive e-mails in their TigerMail accounts once they have switched. This is to allow for sufficient time for students to migrate their data.
