How long are myNortheastern accounts active?


Alumni retain their HuskyMail email and G-apps services. Students who withdraw from the university have access to HuskyMail and G-apps until the one-year anniversary of your withdrawal date.

You will be able to use your myNortheastern username and password to access the myNortheastern portal for one calendar year following the completion of graduation requirements. One calendar year following the completion of graduation requirements, your myNortheastern account will be transitioned to full Alumni status. At this time, you will lose access to all remaining student systems that use your myNortheastern username and password for authentication.


If you leave the university, your myNortheastern account access is limited to HRM Benefits and Services until April 30 of the year after you leave. Your account is removed immediately if your employment is terminated.

If you retire from the university, your access is transitioned as you work through the process with Human Resources Management.


Access ends based on your role.

Can I open a new myNortheastern account as an alum?
No. Recent alumni (graduation date 2008-present), your myNortheastern access transitions after graduation and you can access Northeastern’s online alumni community, Husky Nation, using your myNortheastern username and password. Alumni with graduation dates prior to 2008 must create a separate Husky Nation account.

When and how can I sign up for my permanent email forwarding account?
Three months after your graduation date, you are eligible to sign up for your permanent email forwarding account. It takes time for us to transfer all graduation data from the Registrar’s office to our files. Once your data is in our system, simply visit the Alumni Online Community (Husky Nation) to sign up.
