Attention graduating students: Want to keep your email address after graduation? Now you can!

Information & Technology Solutions (ITS) is pleased to announce this service in response to student demand for a “Mines email address for life.” But be aware: Setting up your new Alumni email address will require your deliberate action and attention prior to departure.  This e-mail account is hosted on the Microsoft 365 platform.

After commencement, graduates will receive an email invitation to request an Alumni “email-for-life” account.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to claim your Mines Alumni Email account. During, or soon after, the checkout process for graduation…

1. Log into your Trailhead account ( with your Mines MultiPass and click General Self-Service (on the left) > Personal Information. Update the Personal Email Address and make sure a non-Mines e-mail address has been added via the Edit or Add New menu (if it isn’t already in place). This will be used in the event you forget your Mines Alumni Email password.

2. Eligible individuals will receive an offer e-mail after graduation. This e-mail will have instructions on how to request the transition of your exchange account and license to an Alumni account. This e-mail will not ask you for personal information, to verify your identity, or to supply password information.

3. Once your exchange license has been converted to an Alumni license this mailbox will become your "Email Address for Life" mailbox.  Any other Microsoft 365 services and licenses will be removed from your account.


Mines “email address for life” gives you access to an email address.  It does not give access to the school’s VPN, to resources accessible to current students via MultiPass, or to Library Proxy resources. This is email, pure and simple.
