As a TAFE SA student you get access to a variety of online systems that you’ll need to regularly use, like email, your online learning environment (called Learn), the Library catalogue and the system you’ll need to use to enrol (called MyTAFE SA). The TAFE SA Portal will let you access all these in one place.
TAFE SA uses Microsoft Office 365 to manage student emails. You should regularly check your student email to ensure you're notified of important information.
Your TAFE SA email address is in your own name format, ie firstname.lastname@example.org. Use your TAFE SA email address to sign in to TAFE SA computers and various tools.
Open an internet browser to access any of these resources and you will be asked to enter your email and password in a ‘single sign-on’ screen. If you keep your browser window open, you won’t need to re-enter your password to access other resources.
You may also opt to forward your TAFE SA email to your personal email account.
Contact Us, phone the InfoLine on 1800 882 661 (during business hours), or visit Information Services at your campus if you have any questions.
You can access your TAFE SA emails with most internet capable mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. There are tutorials on how to configure common devices at help.outlook.com. Please refer to your device’s support documentation and support service for assistance.
To set up your account, open the Outlook app and add a new email account by entering your TAFE SA email address as the username, and your password.
