I noticed a few posts on a way to get an .edu email but these were quite old and outdated. I figured out a way to make it work right now and you get your .edu email in 15 minutes.
Here's how to get your free .edu email

1. Go to cccapply.org and select Cuesta College from the dropdown menu and hit apply
2. You will be taken to Cuesta College's website. Hit Apply Online Today for the latest term.
3. You will be taken to Opencccapply.net, Create an account here using fake name, address, SSN from fakenamegenerator.com
4. After you are done signing up press the start a new application button and select Cuesta College
5. Press Start Application and fill up the application with the same data.
6. Submit the application. If you have given your SSN (fake), You should get an email with instructions to get your .edu email ( [email protected] )
7. Enjoy the benefits

I got this in Mail

You will be sent an email containing your myCuesta student web portal login within 2-3 business days. Access is available within an hour (if you provided your social security number in the application), unless your application needs further review. In the myCuesta student portal you will:

  • Activate your myCuesta student email after 24 hours.
    • Important!!! Once activated, all official communications from Cuesta College will ONLY be sent to your myCuesta email account.
  • Access the Online Orientation.
  • Register for classes.
  • Check your Financial Aid status.
  • Pay your fees.
  • Access on-campus wireless internet on your personal WiFi device.
  • Check to see if your college transcript arrived - allow 15 days for student email notification.
  • And much more! Your next step is to review our website at cuesta.edu to educate yourself on policies, regulations and our services.

as in the title, there are benefits like free storage, discounts...etc. because of abuse, some places no longer accept emails from certain colleges. (i think adobe cloud services wont accept from certain colleges anymore)

This is the pdf instructions I got in email.

Did you get a normal text email with your username and temp password? Also you must use your Temporary password given in the email and not your openccc password
