Current Emory Students
I am a current student at Emory. Can I create an alumni email account?
Yes. You can create an alumni email account once you receive access to the online directory. Your student email account with Emory through Outlook is not associated with an alumni email account. We suggest setting up your alumni email account during your last year at Emory. This enables you to have a professional email address while working on your plans for after Emory. You can also send any important documents or messages to your alumni account before your student account is deactivated. This deactivation of your student account happens in the months after you graduate, sooner if you leave Emory before completing a degree program. For information on your student email account, see Emory Libraries and Information Technology.
As an alumnus, I have a different email account through Emory. Does this new alumni email account affect my other Emory email account?
No. A few Emory schools and units offer alumni email accounts for leadership boards and other alumni groups. The alumni email account offered by the EAA is not associated with those email accounts. This includes @emory.edu and @law.emory.edu email accounts. If you have and @alum.emory.edu, please read the section for Former Forwarding Email Account Users.
