Lifetime Email for Alumni

Graduates, as you finish your senior year and join the ranks of the Alumni, be sure to watch your student email account for instructions to setup your @alumni.usca.edu email account!  You will receive a "free" USC Aiken Alumni email address that never changes, even when you change jobs or mail providers.  It should arrive within just a few weeks of graduation. 

Regular student email accounts are removed after one year of non-activity as a student, but once you switch to your Alumni account, it’s yours for life!
