Migrate your emails from @brown.edu to @alumni.brown.edu

For most graduating students, this article is NOT necessary. Your email account will automatically change from a brown.edu to an alumni.brown.edu account. However, some graduating students might have other affiliations - for example, they may be continuing as staff. In these cases, they will receive an empty alumni account and can optionally move content to the new empty account.
