Transition your Student Services

Upon graduation, you or your program coordinator can submit a request to transition your SCS account to a CMU Alumni account. You will receive an email indicating your access to SCS services are changing. This process is called de-provisioning. 

Use the guide below as you transition the services associated with your SCS account, including your AFS file storage, personal web pages and other SCS computing-related services to new services and storage locations

Email

  • Upon request, we will deliver your SCS email (userid@cs.cmu.edu) to your new Alumni email (andrewid@alumni.cmu.edu) account.
  • You will only receive email sent to your SCS email address. You will no longer be able to send email from this email address.
  • Use the Alumni Mail Migration tool to migrate your student email to your Alumni email account.  For more information please visit Transition your Andrew Services.
  • Please see the Alumni Association website for additional details about your new CMU Alumni email account.

AFS (Andrew File System)

  • Delete any files that you do not want to be retained in the volume.
  • Use a secure FTP program to move files to your personal computer's hard drive, removable media or another storage location.
  • If you do not move your files, you will not have the ability to access them form their current location in AFS.

Website (cs.cmu.edu/~username)

  • If you have a personal web page in AFS that is served by the main SCS web servers, you can have that page redirected to your new hosting site.
  • You can complete the request online and have your www.cs.cmu.edu/~username redirect to the new URL that you provide.
  • If you do not redirect your website you will not have the ability to make edits or additions to the existing site in its current location in AFS.
