Getting Started with SAS Student Email

  • Students & Alumni

As an SAS student, you will create an email address based on your PennKey. For example, if your PennKey is "bfranklin", your email address will be " ". This is the address that is entered for you in the Penn directory and is the address that your professors, advisors and others at Penn will use to communicate with you.

To get started you can:

Create your Google@SAS account - When you select Google@SAS, your SAS email will be delivered to your Google@SAS account. Please note: Two-Step Verification is mandatory for new Student Google@SAS accounts. New Students have 30 days from the creation of their Google@SAS account to enable Two-Step Verification before the policy is enforced.


Setup Forwarding to a personal address - You'll provide the address for an existing email account, and your SAS email will be delivered to that account.

Please note that you need to wait at least 24 hours after registering your new PennKey before you can create your SAS email address

If you have problems or questions concerning how to configure your SAS email address please consult the Google@SAS FAQ page.  If you are still having trouble please use our help form.
