Creating a Third-Party Personal Email Account

The University's Password Reset Portal requires that you have a third-party email address listed in your account. This is to ensure that you have a separate means of verifying yourself in our systems, should you lose access to your Taylor University account. The third-party email address belongs to you and is not associated with the University.

All users are responsible to enter and keep their information up-to-date. Instructions on how to add or update your third-party email address in TOWER may be found here.

If you do not already have a third-party email address, we have included links below to some major email providers that detail how to create a new account in their systems. There are many email providers besides the few listed below, and you are free to choose any provider you wish.
