About Student Emails

Tawnya -

Students will receive emails from Handshake for a variety of reasons. Our University Success and Support teams have put together a database of the emails students can receive and examples of each email and organized them into categories, listed below. 

 

Welcome Back to School Series: 

These are strategically timed emails to orient users to the features of Handshake. All of these email are sent from “noreply@joinhandshake.com”. These messages will only be sent once in a semester.

These notifications can be opted into/out of per student in their Notification Preferences. The emails are triggered by activity on the Handshake platform, and all emails come from the domain “notifications.joinhandshake.com”, save for Event and Career Fair invitations; those two invites are sent from “mail.joinhandshake.com”.
