But I use another email account.

Do I have to use GusMail?
PSU has made the decision to move to GusMail for all PSU communications so we have a higher level of confidence that messages are received. Some other systems often treat email from PSU as spam. All university communications will be sent to your GusMail account. This will include emails regarding your financial assistance, enrollment, or other university notifications. Also, your instructors will use your GusMail account to send out class communications.
It would be a shame to miss an important email from the University, or your professor.
