Alumni Email FAQ
Student @eng.ucsd.edu Google Workspace accounts:
The current policy for alumni @eng.ucsd.edu accounts is that the student can retain access to them for one year post-graduation.
However, this policy is in flux and we have not actively closed alumni @eng.ucsd.edu accounts, while we determine a new policy.
When we do finalize a policy you may be asked to change your @eng.ucsd.edu username, or even close the @eng.ucsd.edu account, after the year is up.
