Information for Graduating Students

Username

In accordance with Clemson University's Username and Password Policy, one year after graduation, your Clemson Username will be deactivated. This means all your access to Clemson student resources will no longer be available.

We suggest you prepare with the following steps:

  1. Backup all of your personal data on your laptop and bring it by the CCIT Customer Support Center in the Cooper Library for a final hardware check and reimage.
  2. Save a copy of your unofficial transcript. After your Username is deactivated, you will no longer be able to access your unofficial transcript. Instead, you will have to request an official copy for a fee, as directed by the Registrar's transcripts page.

Software

All Clemson University students have access to Microsoft Office as part of Clemson University's site licensing agreement. Our agreement also allows us to reinstall Microsoft Windows on your laptop when the need arises. Once you graduate, you will no longer qualify to reinstall Clemson's site-licensed software. To avoid having to pay full-price for this software if you need it in the future, you should visit the Clemson Computer Store to purchase a copy of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office at a greatly reduced, academic rate. The Computer Store is located in the Edgar Allen Brown Student Union and may be contact at 864-656-1563 for the latest prices.

Email

Clemson University offers two email options.

Google Apps for Education (http://g.clemson.edu)

Since fall 2008, all new students have been automatically provisioned with a Google Apps account. An important feature is that your Google Apps account will be available indefinitely. After you graduate, you should have people send email to username@g.clemson.edu. Please note that forwarding of username@clemson.edu will cease soon after your username is deactivated, so make sure to let all your contacts know they should be sending to @g.clemson.edu instead of @clemson.edu.

Clemson Alumni Forwarding (http://alumni.clemson.edu)

The Clemson Alumni Association offers a lifetime forwarding address to all Clemson alumni. This is not an actual email account, but will forward all messages sent to it to an email account of your choosing. You can visit the Alumni Website to get more information by clicking on the "Lifelong E-mail forwarding" link.
