OSU provides an ONID email address for all students, faculty, staff, and others associated with the university. Additionally, most faculty and staff also have an Exchange account which may provide their primary email address (which uses the @oregonstate.edu domain).
ONID is a lot more than just email; it gives you access to Blackboard, myOSU, and many other OSU systems. But for students in particular (as well as some faculty and staff), ONID email is their primary email address at OSU.
Most faculty and staff, except some who are employed by COAS, Engineering (COE), or Science (COS), have a Microsoft Exchange email account at OSU as part of a full suite productivity solution. Most OSU staff use their Exchange address, with the @oregonstate.edu domain, as their primarily email address.
There are several differences between an Exchange account and an ONID account.
