With email forwarding, you can have a BC email address that remains constant after you leave BC. This email address is not an email account, but BC will forward email sent to your "@bc.edu" addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com) to your non-BC email account. As long as you update BC with your current non-BC email address, you will continue to receive email through your Boston College forward-only email address.
Please remember that access to your saved email, email folders, BC Google account (g.bc.edu), and many student services in Agora Portal will not be available after the deactivation process.
Setting up Email Forwarding
We highly recommend you set up email forwarding before your email account is deactivated. By default, BC will forward email sent to both of your "@bc.edu" addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com).
To set up email forwarding:
- Sign in to Agora Portal using your BC username and password. If you don't have a BC Alumni account in Agora Portal, register using the Alumni Online Registration system. Once registered, go to Step 2.
- Under “Account and Personal Info,” click "Email Services."
- Follow the instructions on the web page.
