Update your Alumni Email Forwarding Address

Previously, alumni who had addresses could control their email forwarding without having a CNetID. This could cause confusion, as alumni are also now eligible for alumni CNetIDs that provide campus wireless, control of a email address, and access to the website! IT Services has thus streamlined this process by merging old email addresses with CNetIDs. Alumni may claim a CNetID using the above links, then adjust their forwarding as needed. When you adjust the forwarding for your email address, your email address will automatically change as well.
