Congratulations, Graduating Students!

Before you leave ECU, don’t forget to move your ECU data

Get started with this list:

  1. Download any Piratedrive documents to your personal computer
  2. Save your Portfolio from iWebfolio
  3. Download any Web content from MyWeb html or WordPress sites
  4. Save survey data from Qualtrics if you participated in any research activities
  5. Download the Microsoft operating system you receive FREE as a graduating ECU student. Please immediately burn your software to DVD in the event that reinstallation is necessary, and write down your product key.


Alumni Email

A graduate’s student email address is automatically migrated to the alumni Office 365 domain one semester after graduation. This is the only ECU system where you continue to use your ECU PirateID and passphrase after graduation.

  • The email address changes from to
  • All messages automatically migrate to the new @ address
  • Any messages sent to the graduate’s former student address are automatically forwarded to the new alumni address
  • Alumni are not able to send email from the old student address
  • Alumni log in from the interface using their student PirateID/passphrase
  • Alumni are required to change their passphrase every 90 days through the Pirate through the Passphrase Maintenance website
  • Alumni keep the same 1TB OneDrive cloud storage folder, so there’s no need to move stored documents
  • Documents in the OneDrive folder are read only as the ECU Office 365 Microsoft Office license expires
  • This process is automatic EXCEPT that the mobile account must be reconfigured
  • Graduates receive an email reminder to reconfigure mobile devices to the new address
