    If you're in school, I suggest asking people on campus, because they should know exactly what you need. If not on campus, you're probably not among the first to get an iPad, so maybe someone in your social network already knows.

    Most university sites have a help/support pages that will tell you how to set up your computer/device for email. Some may only be open to registered students. Without knowing what college/university/other email provider you are using it's not really possible to guess the setup you'll need. There are a wide range of possibilities.

    Try Googling the name of the institution and "email setup".
