Leighton uses email as the primary means of communication with students. All students are required to log in to their student email account. Currently, enrolled credit or continuing education students will automatically receive an email account. Email addresses will follow this format: UserID@leighton-edu.us. Leighton's emails can be forwarded to another personal email account (Hotmail, Yahoo!, and Gmail). The account's use will expire two years after completing a program or last class attended at the University.
