Hawkmail access when you are no longer a student

Tags hawkmail

Hawkmail accounts for alumni* are kept active indefinitely with the following caveats:

  • Your Hawkmail account is accessed at least once a year.  Any Hawkmail account that is tied to a non-registered student which has not been logged into in over a year may be suspended and eventually deleted.
    • Special note: You actually have to log in - not just use it.  If you're accessing Hawkmail from a computer - Google periodically asks you to log in.  If you're exclusively accessing Hawkmail via the GMail app on your phone or tablet though - it only asks you to log in once you setup the app.  This means if you're on the same phone/tablet and ONLY use that to access Hawkmail you may eventually get disabled.  Because of this - we recommend logging in at least once a year via a computer - not just a tablet/phone.
  • SUNY New Paltz may decide to end this service in the future.  If we do so we commit to at least one year's notice, with ample notifications to all Hawkmail users.

*Note: You are only considered to be an alumni (for the purposes of this service) if you have completed at least one credit bearing course at the college.  If you withdraw before completing any courses at the college, your account will be deleted.
