EagleMail - Student e-mail

E-mail is the primary means of written communication with CSI students. Students automatically get a CSI e-mail account when they register for credit courses. Student e mail addresses have the following format: Students can access their CSI e-mail accounts from any computer with Internet connection by going to and clicking on the Webmail link. Before students can use their EagleMail accounts, they must first activate their accounts. For more information visit

Students are expected to check their CSI e-mail accounts regularly as they receive official communications via e-mail from their instructors and from various offices such as Financial Aid, Admissions, Office of the Registrar, Business Office, etc. It is the students’ responsibility to check their CSI e-mail accounts regularly. Failing to do so will result in missing messages and deadlines. It is also the students’ responsibility to make sure that their mailboxes are not full in order to ensure that important messages do not bounce back.

Students who enroll in online classes are advised to send an e-mail to their instructors to find out how to access the online course.

Online Coursework

To facilitate the delivery and access to course content, CSI utilizes an online learning management system (LMS). This system enables instructors to post their syllabi, class notes, PowerPoint presentations, handouts, quizzes and tests, grades, etc. to assist students through the course sequence. Some courses are completely delivered through the online LMS whereas other courses may supplement the traditional face-to-face class time with an LMS component.

Online Course Evaluation

CSI uses an online course evaluation system for students to provide feedback on most of their courses. All students enrolled in courses being evaluated are encouraged to fill out the online form for each course included in the survey. Faculty members and administration rely on the feedback to continually improve CSI’s courses and offer the best possible experience for students. Evaluations are anonymous and confidential; faculty members are not given access to the survey results until after grades have been posted. Students will be notified by email and/or their instructors when evaluations are available.
