Email Address for Life

We are providing an opportunity for graduates of Alfred University to sign up for an Email Address for Life so that you may keep your email account. Once you have completed the online application and we have received verification, your student email account will be upgraded to an Exchange Online Alumni account.

The online application process for the Email Address for Life is available for each student whose current status is listed as an official graduate of Alfred University.

After the modification of your student email account to an Exchange Online Alumni account, Microsoft Online Services will notify you of a password change, designated through the online application process.
