How do I access my RDP email?

Answer

Every student has a Red Deer Polytechnic email account. There are two ways to access your email.

Access email through the Loop

1. Log in to the Loop with your RDP username and password.

2. Click on "Get Into", in the menu bar, beside your name.

Depending on your device, you will either see the "Get Into" drop-down menu or a list of links within the grey banner.  

If you see "Get Into", click on this and select email from the drop-down menu. If you see the grey banner, simply click on the email link within it. 

3. Choose email.

5. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is in use at Red Deer Polytechnic. If you are asked to authenticate via MFA, do so according to the method you've chosen (app, text, or other method).
