Dear Oakland University Emeritus Faculty Member,

Every year in January you will receive a notice to renew your Emeritus email account. You will still keep your Emeritus standing at Oakland whether you have an email account or not. There is no fee for an Emeritus email account and no fee to renew. You have to take action to retain your Oakland Emeritus email account. If you do not renew your email account, it will be deleted on the expiration date listed above. If you no longer wish to have an Oakland email account you can do nothing and on the date above it will be deleted or you can fill out the form below, requesting delete and it will be deleted immediately.

Once an email expires, all email, contacts, calendar events, Google Drive, Google Photos, and anything registered with that account will be deleted. There is no recovery process or backup to restore the contents of your account once it is deleted.
