Don’t Forget to Transition Your Files Before You Graduate

Author: Lenette Votava

All the hard work you've done as part of your Notre Dame academic career needs to go with you as you take your next step. You need to begin taking steps to transfer your files stored in:

  • Gmail & Google Drive
  • Box Resources
  • Other services including web pages, YouTube videos, etc.

Locate the files and other resources you want to keep from your Notre Dame account and transfer them to a personal account, such as your Notre Dame alumni account, within 60 days after you graduate. Your NetID will be deactivated after this time.

New messages will be forwarded from your ND email account to your ND alumni account. However, make sure to transfer any saved messages you want to keep to your ND alumni account because you will longer be able to login to your NetID 60 days after graduation.

In addition, you may have used your ND account with services such as social media, your bank, Paypal, Apple ID, etc.). If so, be sure to change the registered email address for these accounts to another email address you can access after your NetID has been deactivated.

Follow this handy step-by-step guide to make these important changes.
