Email: Keeping a UCSD Address After You Leave

Find out how to keep your UCSD email account after you leave the university.

Email forwarding

When your affiliation with UCSD ends, you can continue receiving email sent to your UCSD address by forwarding mail from your @ucsd.edu address to a non-UCSD address. This forwarding is available for up to one year from the date of your separation from UCSD.

To sign up for this service, send a message to the UCSD Postmaster including your UCSD email address and the email address it should forward to.

Health Sciences staff

Health Sciences staff are prohibited from forwarding email under policy MCP 18.1. Eligible staff, usually retirees, may request a new @ucsd.edu email address which can be forwarded.

Emeritus Faculty

If you are emeritus faculty, please work with your department systems administrator or DSA to extend your email account into retirement.

Retirement Association members

If you join the Retirement Association, you have other options for retaining a UCSD email identity. For more information, contact the Retirement Association.
