One semester after graduation…

ECU email migrates to the alumni domain*

Your ECU email address changes to

All messages migrate to this new address.

Messages sent to a former student address forward to the new inbox.

You cannot send email from the old student address after the migration.

Alumni log in to using their student PirateID/passphrase.

You will continue to change your passphrase every 90 days through the passphrase maintenance portal and two-factor authentication is required through Microsoft 365 account security settings.

Don’t forget to reconfigure your mobile email account to the new account!

If there is no activity in your account for one year, it will be deactivated (forwarding email does not count as activity).


OneDrive is available as well

Your OneDrive cloud storage migrates to the alumni account after graduation.

Alumni OneDrive space is 1TB; if your current data exceeds 1TB, move, delete and organize before graduation.

You can edit and create files through the Office apps in OneDrive.

If you downloaded the Microsoft Office suite to your computer, it will no longer be available. Documents on your computer become read-only.

*Did you graduate before February 2014?
