Graduating Senior Email Policy


Wilkes University allows graduating seniors the opportunity to move to a new email after graduation. This policy outlines the steps the senior needs to take to request their email be converted and what happens if they do not.


This policy applies to Wilkes University graduating students.


All graduating students (Undergraduate and Graduate) will have approximately six (6) months from their graduation date to either:

  1. Contact The Office of Alumni Relations to request that their email account be converted to an account.
  2. Move or copy any current emails from their email account to another email source (e.g. personal gmail, Yahoo, etc.).

Students choosing option 1 will have their accounts moved to an account allowing for access to email. However, access to student resources and the portal will be removed, as that is not continued past graduation.

Students choosing option 2 will have their emails removed six (6) months after their graduation date. All current and saved emails will be deleted, and the user will be entirely disabled. Please be advised that if the student decides to return to Wilkes University, their email address can be reinstated, but all previous emails will be gone.

Students who are continuing on to Graduate school in the fall, Pharmacy students, and employees of Wilkes University must choose option 1.


Information Technology Services (ITS) is responsible for administering all email accounts which includes disabling and/or re-creating.

Alumni Relations will handle all requests for alumni email and will compile the list of graduates requesting alumni email access.
