    • Transfer your BC emails, documents, and photos to a personal account. We suggest starting this process shortly before or shortly following graduation as the process may take over a week.
  • Remove your BC email address from ALL online services such as LinkedIn, Twitter, banking, ticket purchases, etc.
    • Once your BC account has expired, no recovery is possible through BC.
