E-mail Account Deletion

For graduates and other students who will not be taking classes at Hope following the current semester/term.

Why is my account being deleted?
E-mail accounts are provided for current Hope College students only. When you graduate or withdraw, your account expires. We cannot provide accounts to non-students, even for a fee.

When will this happen?
Students who are no longer enrolled in classes at Hope College following the current semester or term will have their accounts deleted shortly after the start of the following term. For example, if you graduate in May, your accounts will be deleted in the Fall. This also applies to students who are withdrawing from Hope - even on a temporary basis. Upon re-enrollment in classes, new accounts can be created. If your account is slated for deletion, you will receive an e-mail from CIT several weeks in advance so that you may transfer your messages to a new account.

What if I'm walking in the graduation ceremony - but will be taking classes this summer or next semester?
Your accounts with Hope College will remain active until you stop taking classes. If your name appears on upcoming enrollment reports, you will continue to have an e-mail account.

But I'm not graduating until next year!
If you are not graduating from Hope and are actively enrolled in classes for May Term, June Term, Summer Term or the subsequent spring/fall semester, your accounts will not be deleted.

But I am graduating! How will I get e-mail?
You should set up another e-mail account with a free e-mail provider. The most common is Gmail.

What about my old e-mail messages?
Before your Hope account is deleted, you can forward important messages from it to a new e-mail address (see item above).

Instructions for transferring Google docs
Unfortunately, because 1HOPE accounts use Google Apps there isn't a way to transfer your DOCS directly from your 1HOPE account to a Gmail account:
You will need to export them to a non-Google format, then re-upload them to your new account.
The procedure for doing this is to select multiple documents from the listing, then under the MORE menu select "Download". The result will be a ZIP file containing multiple documents. You can then unzip that file and upload the documents to your Gmail account.

Other things to consider
Change any websites that login or communicate via your Hope email address (Facebook, LinkedIn, banking, etc.).

Be sure your resume has your non-hope email address.
