What happens to my email after I leave the university?

Employees who leave the University generally have their email address and account deactivated at the time that their employment ends. Exceptions are sometimes made for emeritus and retirees who maintain a close connection to the University.

Students who leave the University having completed a degree program and earned a diploma are considered alumni, and get to keep their email address and email account as long as they care to use it.

Students who leave the University without completing a degree program have their @wustl.edu email address deactivated 91 days after losing their current student status.
