Way back in the beginning of 2006, South Seattle 'early adopters' began investigating a myriad of online applications as another means of delivering education (in particular for face-2-face, hybrid and online classrooms) and to bring back our 'student e-mail accounts'.

At that time, we discovered a powerful 'Intranet' integrated suite of tools being offered educators and their students for FREE - giving each of our users over 7GB of storage!
It didn't take long before South seriously got on board and by March 27th 2008, SouthSeattle Email & Web Apps was officially launched and it has been quietly growing bigger and bigger throughout our campus and the district since.

Even our sister campus, Central (SCCC) has adopted these powerful and secure tools and North (NSCC) is 'seriously considering it for student e-mail', as well!
So what does this mean to you? Read on! :)

You can also take the reverse approach and point up to 5 different e-mail accounts towards your new SSCC E-mail account.
