Alumni who prefer not to use U-M Google for their email can still retain the use of their @umich.edu address. U-M offers email forwarding for alumni at no charge. Additionally, alumni have access to Google services (i.e. Drive) and the technology product deals through the university.
E-mail forwarding allows you to use your “umich.edu” address, while forwarding mail to a personal or work account. It's a great way to stay in touch with fellow Ford School and University of Michigan alumni, even during career transitions and changes in internet providers. It also offers a clear association with the University of Michigan for professional networking.
- To use the e-mail forwarding feature, you must have access to the internet, maintain an e-mail account (e.g. through a commercial provider, your employer, etc.) and have a U-M uniqname and password.
- Email forwarding requires a U-M uniqname. See our U-M Login Help page if you don’t have a uniqname or have forgotten your password.
- After you have your uniqname, you can set up email forwarding in your MCommunity profile.
