Important: Lifetime Email Forwarding

Posted On: 11/30/09 | Comments (0)

As you are graduating and completing your graduation application on Wolverine Access, please remember to select lifetime forwarding from your umich account to the email you will be using post-graduation.

Once you graduate, you will no longer have your umich email unless you choose to keep it for a fee. If you do not keep your umich email address, the school allows you to forward emails from that email account to the one you will be using after graduation at no cost to you.

This is especially important for Career Services, as it allows us to contact you in the future to complete our Employment Survey and improve our services.

Thank you!
