Students can get plenty of discounts on tech products. Many services will offer you a discount when you sign up with a student email. However, it would help if you were a student to get this discount. You can enroll in a university to get an.edu email address, but this is not always an easy option. Not all universities give you a.edu email address when you enroll. There are other reasons to go through creating an.edu mail address. Some universities do not offer you an address, even when you actively enroll in them. You might have finished your degree, and your university might have disallowed your address.
There are two methods to get a.edu email address: the free method and the paid method. The free method will get you a free.edu email address, but it will take a couple of days. The paid method will instantly get you a.edu email address, but you will have to pay for it. This article will show you the benefits you can enjoy by using your new mail address.
How To Get A .Edu Mail Address: Step-By-Step Instructions
Getting a .edu mail address is as easy as applying to college. If you apply online, you can get your address without enrolling in a college. To complete the process, follow these steps:
Visit the Website of Diablo Valley College
The following is a link to Diablo Valley College’s website: Steps to enroll (dvc.edu). Click on “Enroll as a new student” at the bottom of the page.
You will be taken to a new page with lots of information about the college. Of course, since you aren’t enrolling in college, you don’t have to worry about all that. All you want is that juicy email and all the goodies that come with it.
Apply to Diablo Valley College
by scrolling down and following the steps. You can apply online by clicking on “Step one: apply” and using CCCApply.
Don’t worry; you aren’t actually applying for college. You won’t have to pay anything or provide any personal information. I will show you in the next step how to create the necessary information to complete the form so that you can fake your information and still receive your email.
After you click on “Create an account,” an account creation page will appear.
Create your OpenCCCAccount
After you create an account, you will be asked to choose a course and then click on the “Create Course” button. The form will appear. You will need to fill out the details of the course. It is best to choose a course that you are familiar with to explain it better. If you do not wish to input your accurate data, you can always use a fake address generator to create a person who doesn’t exist and use their data to fill in the form.
I have had some issues with the generated addresses. The first 3 I tried didn’t work, but eventually, the 4th one worked. So don’t worry if your first attempts get rejected. Once you’ve followed these steps, you will receive a mail from OpenCCC that will give you your CCCID, which is your global California Community Colleges ID. You don’t care about this, and it’s only a necessary step to get your.edu mail address. Here’s what the email looks like:
Wait for the Diablo Valley College email
The email will include your Student ID, your username, and your.edu email address. You are now free to use this address however you please. Don’t worry if you don’t get your mail immediately. In the case 3 days pass without you getting your.edu mail address, I advise trying again with a different mail address and new information.
The only way to do this is to use a free email provider like Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. If you use a paid email provider like Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo, or AOL, you’ll have to wait until your account is closed. Be careful when purchasing one, as some are fake and will take your money without giving you what you paid for. Always research before making purchases online; don’t trust the first source you find.
