Student Email Forwarding Extended until May 2012

In the Fall of 2009, we migrated our student email system to the Husky email system, powered by Google Apps. Prior to the student email migration, all student email addresses were at @neu.edu. With the move to Google Apps, our student email service was mapped to the @husky.neu.edu email domain. To enable a smooth transition to this new email service and email domain, it was planned that we would continue to accept incoming email for students at their @neu.edu email address and forward it to their @husky.neu.edu address, until the end of December 2011.

After careful consideration, we have decided to extend the @neu.edu forwarding for students until May 2012. Extending the date to the end of the Spring 2012 semester will allow students to finish their academic year with minimal disruption to their email service. In preparation for the May deactivation of email forwarding, we will begin to send monthly email summaries to those students who are currently receiving emails at their @neu.edu account. For many students it will be required to update your contact information with the identified contacts or services (Facebook, Groupon, Amazon, etc.) to whom you have provided this address. Faculty and staff will receive a similar communication informing them they need to update their contacts with the appropriate email address.
