Can I keep my UIC email address after I leave UIC?

Tags mail gmail

Technology Solutions email addresses, accounts, and services are available to current UIC students, staff, and faculty.

When class registration or employment at UIC ceases, access to email addresses and Technology Solutions email accounts and computing resources is extended for a grace period to allow time for transition to a new email provider. Unfortunately, we cannot offer unlimited periods of account access or email forwarding with the exception of students that graduated in/after Spring 2020. 

Relationship to UIC Grace period

One full term after class registration ends.

For example, a student who was last registered for the Spring 2018 term will retain their UIC NetID, email address and access to services throughout the Fall 2018 term. 

Students graduating in/after Spring 2020 are eligible for the Email Forwarding for Life program. Review more information at How do I opt into UIC Alumni Email Forwarding for Life?

Faculty and Staff 90 days after employment ends

Technology Solutions does not provide UIC NetIDs and access to services for persons who have graduated and are no longer affiliated with the University.
