Retirees must opt in to keep a University address
Access to email and Office 365 for employees and DCCs separating from the University is changing.
As of July 1, 2021:
- Retirees will be allowed a 60-day grace period of access to their work email and Office 365.
- During that time, retirees may opt in to keep a University email address, although the email will use the University’s CatMail service (Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals).
- Existing retirees will get a 60-day grace period starting July 1, and lose their University email address if they haven’t opted in by August 29.
- Emeritus will keep access to work email after their application process is completed.
- All other employees/DCCs separating from the University will lose access to Outlook email/Office 365 immediately.
- Any employee/DCC/retiree separating from the University who is a current or former student will automatically have their email address rerouted to CatMail.
These changes are being implemented to:
- Better align University email practices with business and security best practices.
- Continue providing University email service to the 28% of retirees who use it.
- Reduce the financial and overhead costs of maintaining unused accounts.
Employees and DCCs are provided with work email and Office 365 accounts to conduct business on behalf of the University.
- You should not be using work email for personal email.
- Work that your team needs to access should be stored in a team space.
