Oregon State University provides a lifetime email forwarding address for alumni. The format of this e-mail address is  "", where you choose your own username. Emails sent to this account will be automatically forwarded to another account of your choice. ONID accounts are NOT lifetime addresses and they do NOT forward mail to your Lifetime Email address. 


If you graduated before 1992 you will need to fill out the Lifetime E-mail Information Request form to set up your Lifetime E-mail forwarding account.

For everyone who graduated in 1992 or later.

  1. Go to the
  2. Go to the Resources tab in Student Dashboard.
  3. Search for Lifetime Email Address Update.
  4. Enter your desired Lifetime E-mail Address and the destination e-mail Address you would like messages forwarded to.
  5. Click the “Update E-mail Address(es)” button and you are finished!

OSU does not provide a Lifetime E-mail address or permanent e-mail forwarding for Non-Emeritus Faculty or Staff who leave the University. Nor does OSU provide permanent e-mail forwarding for students who leave without graduating.
