Update your contact information
Request official transcripts from the Office of the Registrar.
Cmail is the recommended email service available to all alumni. It is a Cornell-branded email account provided by Google Apps for Education. Students who had a Cmail account when they graduated can continue to use it without taking any action for as long as Google offers this service for Cornell.
Switching to Cmail
1. Update your email routing preferences at WhoIAm@Cornell
• Check the box for "Deliver my email to Cmail (Google Apps Education Edition)"
• Remove any account that you do not wish to have your email sent to.
• Click Update to save your changes.
• Note: You will be prompted to change your netID password as part of this process. It will take approximately one hour for mail to start flowing to your Cmail account.
Set up email forwarding
Set up email forwarding to use your Cornell email address wherever you go.
Cornell's email forwarding service directs "@cornell.edu" messages to the email address of your choice. However, Cornell can no longer guarantee the delivery of email being automatically forwarded to non-Cornell accounts due to the restrictions of outside services. The university's information about email forwarding and the WhoIAm system for setting forwarding will be updated with a warning to this effect. It is because of these challenges in email forwarding that we recommend using Cmail.
Look up your NetID
The NetID is a universal and secure identifier, unique to you, required to access many secure Cornell online services, such as email forwarding, CornellConnect, electronic library resources, and more.
You can check to see if you have NetID by searching for your name in the Cornell directory. If you have a NetID and forgot your password or would like to change your password, you can do so on the Manage Your NetID page.
If you need help with your NetID, please call the IT Service Desk at 607-255-5500 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday - Friday and they will assist you.
Cornell's NetID self-service website will help you activate your NetID and set up your personal password.
