Alumni: Will I keep my My GaTech e-mail account?

This FAQ was last modified on: Wednesday, September 7, 2016 03:32pm

Students lose access to the My GaTech service after having been away from Georgia Tech for more than one full semester. The account as such (username and password) remains intact, but it loses services like My GaTech (mailbox), Prism (disk space), LAWN (wireless), etc. after leaving Georgia Tech. The account can be used to access some services, including Passport, to maintain the account's password and (if eligible for E-mail For Life) personal alias delivery options (which must be updated to a valid email address).
