Alumni have two options regarding their UCI email address.

Option 1: Keep Your UCI Gmail

If you haven't already signed up for UCI Gmail, you must do so within 1 year from your date of graduation. If you miss this deadline, you will not be able to sign up after that time.

Once a year you must renew your account to keep it active for another year. OIT will send you several reminders, so keep an eye out for this email. Simply click the link in the email and follow the steps to renew the account. Failure to do so will cause your account to be suspended and eventually deleted.

Option 2: Setup Alumni Email Forwarding

If you choose to have your post-graduation email sent to another off-campus account, all you need to do is signup to forward the new email to that account.

If you graduated prior to 2014, please visit this page instead.

I've tried the steps above and I'm still having issues

If you're still having trouble, feel free to open a ticket. When doing so, please provide the following:

  • Your full name
  • Your UCInetID (the first part of your email address, not your ID number)
  • A detailed description of the issue

Failure to provide this information will delay our response.
