Alumni Email Redirecting

Case Western Reserve is offering an email redirect service to alumni to ensure continued access to new messages sent to their university email accounts. To set this up, simply complete the form by providing a verified external email address (not associated with CWRU) where your mail will be routed. All university email addresses associated with your account, such as, and any email aliases, will be redirected to the external email address.

Note: CWRU's Email Routing tool is available to people whose only active affiliation is as an Alumni. Graduating students must wait until after commencement to access this tool.

Before you begin, you must know your CWRU network ID (i.e., abc123) and passphrase, and have access to an external email address you can check while using the form.
