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.




  • If you want to transfer your data from your @eng.ucsd.edu or @ucsd.edu Google account to a personal @gmail.com account, you can log into your UCSD account and run this utility: https://takeout.google.com/transfer



  • If you graduate and would like to voluntarily close out your @eng.ucsd.edu account, you can contact us at support@eng.ucsd.edu to request the closure.
