Give us your new address
About a month after graduation, you may update your profile information using the Fuqua alumni directory. Continue using the same login and password you used as a student.
Migrate e-mail from your Duke account
You may access your Duke e-mail account (email@example.com) for approximately one year after graduation. You will not receive warning that access is about to be cut off, so you are strongly encouraged to start using a different account and move important messages to your new e-mail account. If you have questions about your Duke e-mail account, please contact Duke's Office of Information Technology. Don't forget to give Fuqua your new e-mail address by updating your profile in the Alumni Directory.
Connect with your CMC Career Coach
Alumni-specific career coaching services typically begin three months after graduation. Learn more here.
Clear out your H: drive
Graduates may use their Duke Net IDs until September 30 after graduation. Your Net ID gives you access to FuquaWorld, the Fuqua VPN, public PCs at Fuqua, and your H: drive. We recommend that you begin to remove or archive data from your H: drive well before September. CD-RW drives are available in the Fuqua main computer lab. Learn more about backing up your information.
Finish any work on the platform
Global Executive, Weekend Executive, and Cross Continent MBA graduates may access the platform for six months after graduation.
Transfer ownership of Team Tools folders
Daytime and MMS graduates may access Team Tools until August 31 following graduation. Team "owners" who are graduating may transfer ownership to another team member through the edit feature in team tools. This should be completed by July 31. Click on "Adjust add/delete privileges" and select the team member to whom ownership will be transferred and then save your changes.
Check out the Duke alumni directory
Duke students who graduate in May can access the Duke alumni directory starting May 31. The directory includes contact information for over 150,000 Duke alumni around the world. The Duke alumni directory requires a log-in and password that is different from your Fuqua log-in credentials. Setting up an account only takes a few minutes. To learn more, visit the Duke alumni web site.
Keep an eye out for your Duke Alumni Card
All Fuqua graduating students will receive a Duke Alumni Card. Your card will be mailed directly to you in early August to the address on file in the alumni directory. Your Duke Alumni Card comes with several privileges.
Wrap up or extend your gym membership
Between May graduation and June 30 of the same year, once you obtain your alumni card, you may purchase a monthly or yearly membership to the gym.
Extend your health insurance
For Daytime and MMS students who graduate in May 2016, the Duke Student Medical Insurance Plan (SMIP) coverage ends on July 31, 2016. Graduated students who have been continuously enrolled in the SMIP for at least 6 months ending on July 31, 2016, are eligible to purchase continuation of coverage. This coverage may be purchased for up to a period of 6 months extending to January 31, 2017.
At this time, the link for continuation of coverage is not available on the Student Blue website. This link will be made available in the month of July and will include details on continuation premium rates and instructions for enrollment. All matters pertaining to continuation will be handled between the student and Student Blue.
Note: Continuation of Coverage will no longer be offered to students who enrolled in Duke SMIP after February 1, 2016. If you do not qualify for Continuation of Coverage and you need health insurance, please visit the healthcare exchange at www.healthcare.gov.
