Frequently Used Resources

Fortis Email

Once you’ve set up your student portal, your email account is available for you to set up.  Sometimes people can get student discounts with an email ending in .edu. This is actually a Google gmail account. You should get an email with a link, or you can set it up yourself.

To set up:

1. Go to

2. User name: same as your student portal user name (usually firstnamelastname)

3. Password: FLastname####!

  • First initial of your first name, capitalized
  • Last name, first letter capitalized
  • Last four digits of your social security number
  • ! (try without the ! if this does not work)

Sometimes, an exclamation point is at the end of the password.

Remember, you can automatically forward this email to your other personal email account.

In your gmail account,

1. Click on gear, then Settings

2. Click on Forwarding

3. Click on “Add forwarding address” and enter the email address you want this email to go to.
