Student Bulk Email System (CRN)


This system enables Department Coordinators to easily construct and send emails to specific groups of students - for example to issue a class cancellation notification or to draw students' attention to an event that's of particular interest. The service is commonly referred to as the Bulk Email CRN, where CRN stands for Course Number or Class Number. It is accessible through the Account Center and requires a specific PeopleSoft role.

Who's it for?

System Configuration

All popular browsers are compatible with the Bulk Email CRN interface.

Additional Information

The pages associated with the Bulk Email CRN tabs contain several similar fields.

  • Enter a subject line – this is the subject of your email
  • Enter your message - this is the text of the email you want to send
  • Enter a Reply To email address – this is the email address for the recipients to use fore replies. The default is your login username.
  • Enter an Additional Information Line – this is for sending a URL that recipients can access for more information.

When you have finished filling out the page, click the Submit Message button to send your email.

Each of the email templates has at least one field with a scroll arrow  button to the right of it. Click on the button to get a list of valid entries for that field.
