Graduates will automatically be converted to Alumni CNAV accounts; the first time you login as an alumnus, you will be asked to provide an email address to forward any email addressed to your CNAV account address. Alums must keep their email address updated for the forwarding from their alumni address to work properly.
Although CNAV does have tools for alumni, myGettysburg Alumni is accessible from every page of the Gettysburg College website. myGettysburg has more advanced features, such as a searchable alumni directory, address and employment updates, events in your area, unofficial transcripts and class news.

Gettysburg College students are given 150 MB for their e-mail on the servers. If you go over this limit you will not be able to receive any e-mail and will receive a notification that you are over the allowed limit. A couple ways to clean out your e-mail are to delete any e-mails you don't need, empty the deleted items folder, and delete any e-mails that have large attachments.
You can check to see if you are within the mailbox limit by hovering over your mailbox name to get your mailbox size.
