If those who have completed graduation requirements (or have left the university) within the last calendar year are considered recent alumni. These individuals maintain access to university accounts and systems similar to that of a current student for one year:
- myNEU – Upon completion of graduation requirements, your account will transition to an alumni status. What you see on the myNEU portal will change, as only the relevant aspects of the portal related to your new status as an alum will be available. Your myNEU credentials (username and password) will continue to provide access to several different university systems, including NUwave.
- HuskyMail/G-apps – Alumni retain access to HuskyMail and G-apps after graduation (2013 going forward) unless you request to remove the service.
- Northeastern Printing Plan – The annual printing credit on your HuskyCard is refreshed every September, so any remaining balance will disappear at this time.
Alumni Account FAQs
Can alumni open a new myNEU account?
No, myNEU accounts are only available to current students and recent alumni.
When and how can I sign up for my permanent @alumni.neu.edu email forwarding account?
Students graduating in 2013 and forward retain their HuskyMail account as alumni. Additionally, three months after your graduation date, you are eligible to sign up for your permanent @alumni.neu.edu email forwarding account. This allows you to give out an @alumni.neu.edu email address that can forward to any email account of your choosing. Visit the Alumni Online Community (HuskyNet) to sign up.
NUwave-guest Wireless Access
NUwave-guest, the open-access (not secured) wireless network, is available in administrative and classroom buildings, as well as the libraries.

To access NUwave-guest you will need to register through a guest wireless portal page, which you will be directed to when you connect to NUwave-guest.
