Updating your email address

In EITOnline, initially the email defaults to your EIT student email account (Username@student.eit.ac.nz). Students can change their email address from the default EIT email account to their regular email account so communications from EITOnline are more accessible. To change your email address hover over your personal menu (your name) in the top right corner of the page to expand the menu. When the drop-down menu appears click on your full name from the list of options - in the pic below the user full name is Elearning Account. This will take you to your profile page.

Click on Edit profile.

Go to the Email address text box.

Change your email address from the default EIT student address to your personal one.When satisfied with the changes, click the Update profile button at the bottom of the page.

Confirm changes

Once you change your address a popup notice will be displayed informing you to confirm that the new email address belongs to you. As the notice states, the email change will not be implemented until you go to your personal email inbox and open the URL sent to you in the email from EIT to confirm the change. Click Continue and your Preferences page will open.

Email update

If you click on Edit profile again. You will see that the email change is pending (waiting on you to access the email sent to your new address).


To finalise the process you must log into your newly chosen mailbox, open the email sent to you from EIT and click on the link inside the email. The Change pending notice will remain until this has been successfully completed and no emails will be received at the new address either.
