Student support for online learning:
Online courses may be unavailable on the third Saturday of each month between 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. due to scheduled server maintenance.
Follow "Access your course and mySIAST" directions until step 5 to arrive at the mySIAST Home Page. Click on the email icon.
SIAST uses the Outlook email system, which may take a little time to load on your computer. Like all email systems all incoming mail appears in your Inbox. Look there to see if you have a message from your instructor. If so, please reply to let your instructor know that you can access your email and your online course.
Online instructors will not send email to external email accounts such as Hotmail
or Yahoo. SIAST's firewall may prevent your instructor from receiving mail sent from
these accounts. Please communicate via the SIAST email system. SIAST's HelpDesk only
accepts incoming email from SIAST accounts.
