Graduating Students - VaultMe



Dartmouth has partnered with VaultMe to assist graduating Undergrad Arts & Science and Guarini students in migrating their Dartmouth email to a personal email account. For each graduating undergrad A&S and Guarini student, Dartmouth will subsidize $10.39 of one VaultMe migration, which is the base migration fee. With them you can migrate:

  • All emails and email folders
  • OneDrive and Google Drive files
  • Calendar events

What is VaultMe?

VaultMe is a recommended, optional, automated online service that can be used to copy your Dartmouth student email account content (email folders and messages, contacts, calendar), Dartmouth OneDrive account content (docs, spreadsheets, files, folders), and Dartmouth Google Drive account content (docs, sheets, slides, files, folders) to an account of your choice (personal or other Gmail/Microsoft account, etc.).

Features offered are:

  • Runs entirely online and requires no software install.
  • Can migrate email, contacts, calendars, and files simultaneously.
  • Takes approximately one minute to set up a migration.
  • Estimates the account migration time based on actual number of items selected for migration.
  • Copies all folder structures and keeps email & file organization intact.
  • Can migrate all the “Shared with Me” files that others own (like group projects you worked on but don’t “own”).
  • Provides real-time migration status.
  • Once complete, provides a detailed migration report showing every item migrated and exactly where it’s located in your destination account.

For each graduating Undergrad Arts & Science and Guarini Dartmouth student, Dartmouth will subsidize $10.39 of one VaultMe migration. This offer is ONLY available for recently graduated Undergrad Arts & Science and Guarini.
