Will my current Ship email messages be automatically transferred to my alumni email account?

No, your current email messages are not automatically moved or copied to your alumni account. However, you can link your current student email account to your alumni account, which will copy any messages and allow you retain them after you are no longer a student. You have the ability to do this up to 45 days following your graduation or departure from Ship. After this time, your student email account will be removed.

See below for instructions on linking your @ship.edu student account to your alumni account.
