Lifetime Email Accounts


OU Students will now maintain their OU email for life. That means when you graduate and leave the University, your OU email account is yours to keep. For life.
  • Access your email as you do now by logging into
  • Your access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, and the other Office 365 productivity tools will expire 30-60 days after graduation. 
  • You will need to download your OneDrive files locally in order to keep them (instructions here)  
  • You can learn more about data retention and OneDrive Storage here.

As part of the campus upgrade to Office 365, lifetime email accounts are now available to Graduates of OU Norman starting with the class of 2015. 

Students who graduated from OU Norman prior to May 2015 may apply for a lifetime email account by filling out the form on our OU IT Service Catalog. After graduation has been verified, an email will be created and assigned to you along with directions for set up. Alumni making this request will need to be sure that they are entering the name that was on the university's records upon graduation.

If you have questions or need further assistance please call 325-HELP (4357) during normal business hours, or visit at any time.
