Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I obtain a WCM alumni email account?

A: If you are a student about to graduate, you will receive an email from the Alumni Affairs office with information about registering for an alumni account. Follow the instructions provided.

ITS has plans to expand this service to alums that have already graduated from Weill Cornell Medicine. More information will be available in the near future.

Q: Will my alumni email account appear in the WCM Directory?

A: No, not unless you personally add it to your account.

Q: What happens to my student email account once I graduate?

A: Upon graduating, you will have 60 days to register for an alumni email account and save any emails from your student account. During this grace period, please inform your contacts of your new alumni email address. After 60 days, your student account will be closed and all of your emails will be lost.
