Frequently Asked Questions:

Alumni email accounts are available to all graduates of SCU, including undergraduate and graduate. Alumni who graduated in 2017 or more recently automatically transition to an @alumni.scu.edu email address. Alumni who graduated prior to 2017 can request an SCU Alumni Email account online through the Alumni Online Directory.

The process of issuing an email address may take 5-10 business days; we verify alumni status according to our records prior to issuing new accounts.

Your email address will end in @alumni.scu.edu (e.g. bucky.bronco@alumni.scu.edu). Email addresses will be assigned using an algorithm to ensure uniqueness, and are not subject to change.

Students who graduated from June 2017 on will have access to their existing SCU email account, but the email address name will change from ending in @scu.edu to ending in @alumni.scu.edu. Alumni email includes access to Google Apps. Graduated students prior to June 2017 must request an SCU Alumni Email through the Alumni Online Directory.

Please view this page for instructions on how to change your password. For any additional questions on how to reset your password, please contact the Technology Help Desk at 408-554-5700 for further assistance.

In Gmail, go to "Settings (the gear icon)" then "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" then "Forward a copy of incoming mail to _______" (see Gmail help instructions).

No, there is no cost associated with this service.

Simply go to gmail.scu.edu and login with your SCU Alumni Email username and password. You may also go to www.scu.edu/login and access your Google account through the SCU Portal.

Your inbox will remain active as long as you send an email from your @alumni.scu.edu inbox once per year. Accounts that remain inactive over one year will be automatically deleted.

All class of 2017 and 2018 graduates received alumni email accounts on Sept. 5, 2018, and received emails to both addresses providing transition specifics: username@alumni.scu.edu and username@scu.edu. As indicated, on Dec. 5, 2018, to complete the SCU alumni email transition, graduates would no longer have their username@scu.edu email address, giving them three months to update their accounts (for any notifications) and inform people of their new contact information. The account is the same, so any earlier emails, Google contacts, etc., would all remain the same. The only thing that is different is that their username@scu.edu is no longer linked to the account. Please be sure to update others of your username@alumni.scu.edu email account to avoid any lapses in communication.

Additional Questions?

Since SCU Alumni Email is hosted by Google, common questions and answers are available online in the Gmail Help Center. For further assistance, email us your question at scualumniemail@scu.edu. Please allow up to 2 business days for a response. Requests to create an SCU Alumni Email account are processed during regular office hours (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
