The Ohio State University Alumni Association

Online services

A variety of online services are provided to Ohio State alumni. Look up a classmate, order your transcript or take advantage of lifetime email forwarding.



Upon graduation, you won't be able to log in to BuckeyeBox, and your shared collaborations will be removed. Files are not deleted but you will want to manage them before losing access. We are not able to transfer files for you.

Download files to your computer or transfer to a personal Box account. Keep in mind that BuckeyeBox accounts allow 50GB of storage, while a free Box account is 10GB.

Classmate search

Find old friends and keep up to date with fellow alumni.

Email forwarding

Keep your name.# for life. Ohio State lets you keep your e-mail address for life through its free email forwarding service. Go to, select "Get Help" under "Resources" and click "Update LEFs" (lifetime email forwarding) address.


Your U.OSU access will also be impacted. When you lose access, you will be unable to sign into the site, even to delete it.

It’s simple to save your content by exporting it to another WordPress site. Check out this Resource Center article for a walk-through of the WordPress export process.

If you used your U.OSU account to manage a group blog or website, transfer your site to a new user or change admins.


You will retain access to “osuwireless” for two years after graduation. You will always have access to the “WiFi@OSU” visitor network. Please note that “WiFi@OSU” is unencrypted.

Documents and records

Student Center

For two years after graduation you can log into to view your financial and academic history, update personal information and more.

Student information

Don't miss out. Student information releases you've set up on your Student Center will carry over after you graduate. If you have "Withhold Directory Information" on your student record but wish to receive communications from Ohio State, including college newsletters, alumni news and other information, call Advancement Records at 614-292-2141.
