TouchNet authorized user domain issue

Student Accounting has found that Authorized User emails that have Gmail domains are not receiving notifications, statements, or password reset emails.

Albion Client Services and TouchNet are working to fix a security issue so these users can receive notifications and emails again.

At this time we do not have an estimated time this will be resolved.

If you have a TouchNet Authorized User that has a gmail account you may set up a seperate non-gmail email to be linked to your student account or log in for your authorized user until this problem has been fixed.

We understand this is a large inconvenience and are working hard to resolve the issue.

If you have further questions or concerns please contact Student Accounting at 517-629-0507 or email

Curtis Summer Bridge promotes self-exploration in STEM

August 31st was a monumental occasion, it was the first day of the James L. Curtis Institute for Race and Belonging Summer Bridge. Powered by a Department of Education’s Title III grant to expand STEM programming access to historically underrepresented student populations, the summer bridge is designed to promote student success. With intersecting topics focused on people, places, and things, this interdisciplinary bridge fosters the most authentic spirit of Liberal Arts Education and self-exploration. During this three-week immersive learning experience, students learn the history, language, and sociological factors that impact our environment. Additionally, students will participate in cultural opportunities that further enrich their learning. This Summer Bridge would not have happened if not for the collaborative efforts of our Albion College colleagues in the Office(s) of Belonging, Student Success, Student Life, and Community Living: Thank you!
