Outbound

When it’s time for a new challenge, here are some things that can help.

Product Migrations
When you're leaving BYU, these are the products that might require some adaptation. Contact our support team at support.byu.edu if you have any questions or need assistance.
If you're a student or employee planning to leave BYU, you should add a secondary non-@byu.edu email address to your Box account to prepare for migration to a personal account. See the FAQ section on box.byu.edu for details.
For Office 365 data migration or retrieval assistance, contact our support team. You should copy your files out of OneDrive to back them up and aid migration. To find out what options there are to purchase Office 365 for your personal use after leaving BYU for graduation or retirement, visit products.office.com.
When leaving the university, you can keep your domain name and hosting by converting to a paid plan, or you can migrate your domain and data to another paid host. Visit the help section of domains.byu.edu to learn about your options.

Retirees
Retirees keep their Net IDs after leaving BYU, but their roles may change. Role changes will affect what services they have access to. The options in myBYU that are available to them will change. And, they lose access to email service unless their department pays for retention of Premium Email. However, retirees usually retain two @byu.edu email aliases. More information on what services are available for Retirees can be found in this knowledge base article.
