Baylor currently provides former students an email account that allows them to continue to show their Baylor affiliation through their email address as noted on this Alumni Email Description page.
The alumni email accounts can be accessed via the web at www.outlook.com/alumni.baylor.edu, via a smart mobile device, or via the Microsoft Outlook software client. The service includes Outlook features like calendar, contacts, etc., and provides 50 GB of email storage.
These accounts will be provisioned - and students notified - before the end of students' current academic programs so that, as they near graduation, they can begin to transition their contact information in various places to the alumni address. Ultimately, as described in the page linked above, student email accounts are deleted.
This alumni email benefit and process may be subject to re-evaluation, modification and termination by the University, in its sole discretion, in the future.
ACCESSING THE ALUMNI EMAIL ACCOUNT
To access your alumni.baylor.edu account:
For the first access: Retrieve your initial assigned password from the personal email message sent you.
Go to www.outlook.com/alumni.baylor.edu and enter: YourBearID@alumni.baylor.edu under "Sign in with your work or school account" and that initial password. You will be required to change your password at that point.
During the time period when students have access to both their student and alumni email accounts, they should move all mail that they want to keep from the student account to the alumni account. Mail can be moved in one of these two ways:
If there are a limited number of email messages in the baylor.edu account to be kept, login to the BearID@baylor.edu student account and forward these messages to the new BearID@alumni.baylor.edu alumni account.
To keep most, or all, of the mail in the baylor.edu account do the following to accomplish the move. (NOTE: Baylor employees should not move their baylor.edu email to a non-Baylor account.)
First, login to the student baylor.edu account and delete any messages not wanted.
Then, follow these instructions to connect the student account to the alumni account so that the email messages can be moved.
