There is nothing you need to do to activate your email account.
Your email account is automatically created as part of the student onboarding process with Admissions and Records. It normally takes a full 24 hours after you receive the 'Permit to Register' email from Admissions for your account to be created.
You should then receive another email from Admissions with the Subject, 'IVC Student Account Information' which includes your college email account login information.
You will then be able to log in to email by going to www.ivc.edu and clicking email at the top of the page or clicking the envelope icon in Mysite. If you go through Mysite, you may be prompted to update your password before logging in.
See the Reset Password page for information.

Student email accounts are deactivated after a student is no longer actively enrolled in a course at the South Orange County Community College District.
College email accounts are for actively enrolled students only. The District deletes email accounts after a semester of inactivity. There is no way to recover emails after this has happened. You will need to re-apply to the school to gain access to a student email again.
The Canvas Inbox is not your IVC Email.
The messaging app may be set to send notifications to your IVC Email address.
How do I use the Canvas Inbox?
