Accounts Information for Graduating Students

June 13, 2017

Congratulations to the Class of 2017 and all recent graduates! We wish you all the best in your new ventures in life. At the same time, we want to call to your attention to some of the continuing computing services that Drexel Information Technology (IT) offers you, as well as the changes that will take place with your account this summer.

The key point to bear in mind:

  • Your computer accounts and services, including email service, will continue for a period of time after graduation. Drexel is currently in the midst of migrating Basic Mail to Office 365, and new email services for alumni are in progress. Once those new alumni services are ready, there will be a transition period between your current Drexel email and your new alumni email service (Note: Your email address might change slightly after transition). Stay tuned!

Please be sure to keep track of your passwords. Once you cease to be an active student, it is more difficult for IT to authenticate your identity in order to help you reset your password.

We hope these services will be useful to you as you begin new assignments and assume new obligations. If you have any questions, send an email to or call 215.895.2020. All good luck for the future.

Note: For those of you with a continuing active role at Drexel (you are going on for an advanced degree, you are an employee, etc.), your computer account privileges continue as appropriate.
