Alumnae have several options for an MHC email address:
- A permanent email address (forwarding).
To obtain a permanent email address from the Alumnae Association here. For Alumnae Association help, please email: AAMHC-Helpdesk@mtholyoke.edu
This is an email forwarding service provided by the MHC Alumnae Association. If you are primarily interested in a Mount Holyoke address for purposes such as facebook, this is the better choice.
- Your current MHC email account.
The purpose of such an account would be for your personal use, conforming to our acceptable use policies which includes no commercial use. In order to stay in good standing, this email account needs to be actively used. Accounts that are inactive for over a semester may be turned off; reinstatement may be requested by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Accounts that have been closed or locked due to security issues or acceptable use violations might not be eligible for reinstatement.
As long as you keep your email account, you will still have access to your personal network space. However ‘classwork’, ‘classweb’, ella's ‘My Workspace' and Moodle files and folders are provided for current students only. (The purpose of these folders is for academic materials.) You must save your data from these locations before graduation. The simple method to save these files is to a flash drive. In general, material in "classwork", "classweb", and "ella" will be available in a read-only mode (you cannot delete or modify it) for one semester after graduation. After that it is permanently removed.
Also, please note that your personal MHC webpages (mtholyoke.edu/~username) are searchable through Google or any search engine. Content you put on MHC webpages may be meaningful to you during your college years, but might not be something you want available to future employers. We recommend you make any changes or deletions to those pages before you leave campus.
If you live in the local area, you may borrow MHC items from the Library. Simply contact the OneCard office for an Alumnae card, and stop by the Library Circulation Desk to update your contact information.
If you live locally you may also use ejournals and library databases at the Library. Our license agreements for these resources regrettably are restricted to current students, faculty and staff and do not permit remote access for alumnae. For those who live farther from campus, we recommend you check your local public library or the library of your local state university. They may offer similar tools to assist in your research.
