Updating Preferred E-mail Address in Employee Center (MyCSULB) for Employees

This article describes how to update your preferred e-mail address in the Employment Center application available in SSO. 

NOTE: Employee Center is only available to State-side employees. Auxiliary employees will have to contact their associated Human Resources department for assistance with updating their contact information in their "HR Feed" file which populates the CSULB identify management system.

For communication purposes, CSULB requires all employees to provide a preferred E-Mail account. Be advised, this account will be used for University notifications, as well as messages sent by students and members of your BeachBoard managed courses and organizations.

After completing this process, please allow 24-hours for all campus systems to reflect this change.
