The Claremont Graduate University Office of Alumni Relations is pleased to offer alumni an e-mail account powered by Google. This service is FREE to all CGU alumni. Your CGU Alumni Google e-mail account will also include a suite of applications:
- Google Mail- conversation views, easy searching and archiving of e-mail. You will never need to delete an e-mail again.
- Google Calendar- schedule your professional and social life, create and share calendars, and invite others to meetings and events.
- Google Docs- great for keeping track of your files -- available anytime, anywhere. Create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
- Access to Google Sites and Google Talk.
- Google Groups- connect with other alumni with similar interests.
- Over 7GB of allocated space to store your data.
This new service is an actual email account, not email forwarding. (However, the CGU Alumni Google account does allow for you to forward your email to a third-party e-mail address - if you choose.)
Accessing your CGU alumni email account:
The Alumni Relations office will send an email to your CGU student email account, informing you of your alumni email address and password. To access your CGU alumni email account, follow the below steps:
- use a web browser and go to mymail.alumni.cgu.edu
- in the user name box, enter the first part of your CGU alumni email address, which is everything before "@alumni.cgu.edu"; i.e. firstname.lastname
- enter the password that was provided to you
- and click on the "Sign in" button
- the first time you log in, you will be required to change your password
* After logging out of your CGU alumni email account, your web browser will show the standard GMail log in web page. If you decide to log back into your CGU alumni email account using this standard GMail log in web page, you will need to enter your complete alumni email address into the user name box, i.e. "email@example.com".
