Graduating Students - Email

 

Contents

What happens

  • Dartmouth offers a forwarding-only service for all alumni email.
  • You will be able to continue using your @dartmouth.edu email address for the rest of your life, but there will be no mailbox attached.
  • Other than your primary email address (e.g. john.a.doe.19@dartmouth.edu) and the (up to two) alternate email aliases you specified in dartdm.dartmouth.edu, any other email addresses at which you’ve been receiving mail will also stop working.
  • Be sure to tell anyone who is not using your primary or alternate addresses to update their address book.

If you are continuing as a Dartmouth employee 

  • Your email account will stay active, but the class year part of your email address will be removed.
  • Your email address with the class year will automatically become an alias for your account so email sent to your current address (with the class year) will continue to be delivered to your mailbox.

If you are continuing as a Dartmouth graduate student

  • Your email account will stay active, but the class year part of your email address will be changed to reflect your graduate student affiliation.
  • Your email address with the current class year will automatically become an alias for your account so email sent to your current address (with your undergraduate class year) will continue to be delivered to your mailbox.

Deadline

  • Approximately 60 days after commencement you will lose access to your Dartmouth email mailbox.

What you need to do

  • Set up forwarding email address
