If you want to keep "rice.edu" in your email address after you graduate, sign in for a rice.edu forwarding address with the Association of Rice Alumni (ARA) - please note that you need a Rice Alumni account to sign in. If you have not yet established your Rice Alumni account, start here: http://alumni.rice.edu.
Student Rice NetID accounts expire several months after graduation. After the accounts expire, no forwarding occurs; mail sent to an expired Rice.edu address is returned to the sender. Setting up and using a Rice Alumni email address prior to graduation will help prevent missed messages after graduation. Any Rice student can set up an Alumni account after their first year of classes.
NOTE: The Jones Graduate School of Business provides email through an Exchange server; please contact the JGS Help Desk for assistance saving your Rice email.
