Your Account at Geneseo

An account at Geneseo gives you access to your Google email, calendar and drive,, online class resources (Canvas), and printing services. Accounts remain active for as long as you're a registered student at Geneseo.

    • Please note that official Geneseo correspondence will be sent to your Geneseo email address. You should be monitoring your account often.

When is my account created?

  • For matriculated undergraduate and graduate students, your account is created after your deposit has been processed by Admissions.  This should generally be within a couple business days of your deposit payment.
  • For non-matriculated students taking individual courses, your account is created after your application has been processed by the Registrar's Office.
  • Full details about when your account is created and how long you can keep it are here Account Eligibility.

When your new Geneseo account is created, you will receive an automated email sent to the address you provided when applying to Geneseo. That message will provide instructions on setting up your new account.
