IMPORTANT - Transitioning to an Alumni Email Account

What happens to my Dartmouth email and contacts when I transition from being a student to an alum?

  • You will be able to continue using your email address for the rest of your life, but all mail must be forwarded to a personal email address.
  • You will lose access to your Dartmouth mailbox approximately 60 days after you graduate.
  • If you want to keep any messages and contacts from your Dartmouth mailbox you will have to move them to a personal email account before then.
  • See Graduating Students - Email for instructions.
