Redirect your lifetime e-mail address
Your email@example.com e-mail address is a lifetime forwarding e-mail alias. While you are a student, this address forwards to your Duke e-mail account (firstname.lastname@example.org). Your Duke e-mail account will be closed one year after graduation. We encourage you to begin using a new e-mail account well in advance of this shutdown. You can stay in touch with Fuqua by giving us a new target e-mail account for your Fuqua lifetime e-mail address using this form. Shortly after graduation, your Fuqua lifetime e-mail address will automatically begin sending to the e-mail account you've chosen.
Empty your locker
Daytime MBA and MMS students should empty their lockers by Friday, May 29. After this date anything left in your locker will be discarded.
Pay your balance
You must pay your balance due at the bursar's office or your diploma and transcript will be withheld. The Bursar's website has information on payment options. Any balance on your student flex card will be returned to your Bursar's account. If you have no outstanding balance at the Bursar's Office, the flex card refund will be mailed to the address you entered in ACES.
Support your class gift
Leave a lasting legacy by paying it forward for the next class of Fuquans. Visit the class gift page to learn more about your class campaign.
Return library books
Before graduation, you must pay any outstanding fines and return items to avoid issues with graduating on time or requesting transcripts. Please consider donating any unwanted books to other students via the Fuqua Book Exchange, April 15-May 15.
If you haven't already downloaded and installed a permanent license for Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office from Duke OIT, you can obtain and license keys and install media prior to graduation. should plan on signing onto http://oit.duke.edu/comp-print/software/index.php to obtain license keys and install media prior to graduation. This is required to eliminate any software authentication or activation issues post-graduation.
The license key located on the receipt must be saved or printed in addition to backing up the install media that is downloaded. There is no recourse for obtaining these items after graduation.
For users of VMWare Fusion on the Mac or others that have installed the KMS version (installed prior to October 2012) of Windows or Office that requires activation on Duke's network every six months, you will need to uninstall the software and reinstall with the version from the On The Hub site. Again, there is no recourse to obtain this permanent license after graduation from Duke. If you have any questions as to which version you have please contact the TSC prior to graduation.
Students may continue to use course-related software such as Regress and Crystal Ball for academic purposes only. The current Crystal Ball license will expire in August.
Return keys to the BMO
If you've been using keys for the bike racks, storage areas, etc., please return them to the BMO.
Complete copying or scanning projects
Because your Duke card will no longer be valid after graduation, any copying or scanning that requires the large Xerox copiers in the Keller East computer lab and the Fox Center student communications area should be completed prior to graduation.
Finish your database research
Your access to many library databases ends at graduation. This is because vendor license agreements do not allow the library to extend access to non-students. Alumni may continue to access many databases while visiting the Ford Library. Check the "Library Services" page in the "Learn" section of this site to see a list of the library databases subscribed especially for alumni.
Check your parking permit
Your parking permit is valid until August 15.
