Alumni Email Account

Alumni email accounts are now available!

To request your account, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

You must include your full name, graduation date, USCA student email address, an alternate contact email address and a contact phone number.

You will receive an email with detailed setup instructions and contact information to use if you require additional assistance.  You'll usually receive the email or a phone call by the next business day.

  1. Go to outlook.com/alumni.usca.edu
  2. Enter your new alumni address as the Username. It's your PacerStudent Username followed by @alumni.usca.edu.  For example, if my PacerStudent Username was smithj then my new alumni email address will be This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  3. You'll need to stop by or contact the Help Desk by email using the link above to receive your initial password.
  4. If you're not sure what your username and password should be, please contact the USCA Help Desk for assistance.  The Columbia/UTS Help Desk will not be able to assist you with this account.
  5. Set your Timezone to Eastern.  You'll need to scroll to the top and then find the Eastern time zone.  It's the 16th from the top.
  6. Once the Time Zone is set, click Save.

You'll see your new Inbox and you should begin using this account as soon as possible.  Be sure to notify everyone of your new email address!

If you run into any issues during any part of the steps above, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.

To make the upgrade possible, students will have a new email address schema.

Students will continue to use their PacerStudent username as part of their email address, but @email.usca.edu will become @alumni.usca.edu. For example, a student who previously used This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. would now use This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or something similar as their email address.

You'll have a few months from the time you graduate to complete setup of your new account.  Regular student email accounts are removed after one year of non-activity as a student, but once you switch to your Alumni account, it’s yours for life!
If you connect to email using your phone or other wireless device, you can connect it to your alumni account now.  You'll find instructions at: http://office.microsoft.com/client/15/help/home?Shownav=true&lcid=1033&ns=OLWAO365E&ver=15&v=15.0.837.4&mode=Desktop&helpid=ms.exch.owao.ConfigureMobilePhone
