If you are a graduate of one of Baylor College of Medicine’s diploma granting schools, the BCM Alumni Association offers you the opportunity to maintain an email address through the College for as long as you like. You can keep your College alumni email address service regardless of other email addresses you may have. Please allow one to two weeks for your alumni email address to be assigned after a request is submitted.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Baylor Lifetime Alumni Email Address?
The Alumni Association offers a lifetime email address to alumni for personal communication. As this is an externally hosted email service, spam filtering is provided and managed by the third-party provider, including password resets. Your alumni email address will be created in the form of current Baylor email addresses, for example: FirstName.LastName@alumni.bcm.edu.
How is the alumni email address different from the email address I had as a student or trainee?
Unlike your Baylor email, which is stored and managed by BCM Office of Information Technology and subject to the policies and regulatory oversight of the College, your alumni email is managed externally by a third-party provider. There are no specific oversight requirements for alumni email.
What happens to my current email address when I leave Baylor?
Your current Baylor email address and mailbox will be closed and access removed upon your graduation or termination date. A “bounce-back” message will notify senders that your account is closed and direct them to your new Baylor alumni email address.
Can I forward my current email to my alumni email address?
College policy prohibits the automatic forwarding of your current email to any unapproved third-party email address, including alumni email. However, you are free to manually forward your personal email and contacts to this address just as you would any other address.
Can I forward my alumni account to another address, such as Gmail?
Does an alumni email address replace my Baylor student or trainee address?
Can I obtain an alumni email address if I am a prior graduate of the College?
All alumni are encouraged to participate in the alumni email address service. For additional information on enrollment in this service as a prior graduate, please fill out a request here.
Can I have an alumni email address if I am still at the College?
Yes. If you are a graduate who is working or training at the College, you may have both an alumni email address and a Baylor email address. They are two completely separate accounts.
How long does it take to receive an alumni email address?
It typically takes one to two weeks for your alumni email address to be assigned after a request is submitted. Please keep in mind that it may take longer during graduation and other busy seasons.
Can I call the Baylor IT Helpdesk for support?
The Baylor alumni email address is an externally hosted Microsoft service. The Helpdesk will not be able to provide support other than very general questions and password issues. Users of this service will need to work through Microsoft’s online support, which is located on the alumni email homepage.
