The EIU e-mail system, known as PantherMail, is the official communication channel for all academic and university notices. It is also a primary means of communication for all of your school-related functions. All official university correspondence is sent to Eastern students via their e-mail account. This includes items such as class schedules, student financial aid notifications and statements from the Business Office.
Failure to use and check your student e-mail account can result in missed messages. It is your responsibility to ensure that your account has sufficient free space to receive university communication.
The easiest way to view your PantherMail is via the secure Web interface located at www.eiu.edu/panthermail. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection and a Web browser. No configuration is necessary. Simply enter your NetID and password in the spaces provided in order to get started.
