Mail and Electronic Communication

Campus/ US Mail

Each faculty member is given a campus mailbox.  Please check it regularly as various college/ campus announcements are delivered directly to employee mailboxes.   US Mail is also processed through the NCTC mail rooms.  In order to send out US Mail, a cost center code must be included on the envelope.  Check with your supervisor to obtain the cost center code for your department.

Campus mail is the property of NCTC and no guarantee of confidentiality can be assumed.  The employee should not receive personal mail, such as bills or magazines, at work.

 

Email and the NCTC Computer System

The NCTC college campuses are networked with wireless access available from almost anywhere on either campus.  Access is available to both the college Intranet and the Internet.  NCTC uses Microsoft Outlook for email, which is accessed from the Internet.  You will automatically receive an email address when hired.  It is possible to log into the NCTC Intranet from a remote location with the proper equipment, software and access codes.  Training in the use of Microsoft Outlook Mail is available through the Information Technology Department.
