Attention graduating students: Want to keep your email address after graduation? Now you can!

Information & Technology Solutions (ITS) is pleased to announce this service in response to student demand for a “Mines email address for life.” But be aware: Setting up your new Alumni email address will require your deliberate action and attention prior to departure.

Near the end of each semester, upcoming graduates will receive an email invitation to request an Alumni “email-for-life” account.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to claim your Mines Alumni Email account. During, or soon after, the checkout process for graduation…

1. Log into the Mines Identity Self-Service portal ( with your Mines MultiPass and set your password-recovery questions and a recovery email address. This should be a non-Mines email address like Outlook Mail, Apple Mail, Yahoo! Mail, a personal Gmail account — anything that does not end in This address will be used in the event you forget your Mines Alumni email password.

2. Log into your Trailhead account ( with your Mines MultiPass and click Self-Service > Personal (tab) > Update Email Addresses and insert the same Personal Email Address used above via the pull-down menu (if it isn’t already in place).

3. Eligible individuals will receive an offer e-mail prior to graduation. This e-mail will have instructions on how to request the new Alumni account. This e-mail will not ask you for personal information, to verify your identity, or to supply password information.

4. Once your Alumni email account is established you may manually move your existing MyMail (including email, Drive files, calendar, and contacts) to it if you like. Your MyMail account and all its contents will cease to exist directly after graduation, so please attend to this step well before your last day on campus. To migrate MyMail data to your new account…
