Alumni Email? Get your new email account! With benefits!

Hurray! You’ve graduated (or will soon graduate) from Pepperdine Caruso School of Law! The last thing on your mind is your Pepperdine Email account, but there are some things you need to know…

  • COVID-19 NOTE – Updated 5/12/2021: This applies to all students graduating from any program at Pepperdine: Student email accounts, WaveNet, and other network-related resources are governed by university policy and managed by the university IT department. Student email accounts, WaveNet access, printing, Zoom, etc. will be deactivated 90 days after the date of the commencement ceremony.  That’s the graduation ceremony (in Alumni Park – sun, sea air, etc.) which for the Spring 2020 on-ground programs is 5/22/2021 and for Spring 2021 is 5/21/2021. 90 days from 5/22/2021 is Friday, August 20, 2021. 90 days from 5/21/2021 is Thursday, August 19, 2021.
  • Recent graduates will receive automated notifications in their student email inboxes 90, 60 and 30 days before account deactivation.  
  • After graduation a process starts that begins with your status changing from student to alumnus.  This process involves a file transfer that takes place sometimes several days (up to four weeks) after graduation.  Sure, you have the diploma but the system doesn’t recognize you as an alumnus until that file is transferred from the student system to the alumni system. Typically this takes place about a month after the date of your graduation.  That’s when all the automated stuff starts up.
  • On the fifteenth day of the month immediately after your graduation date you will get an email to your student email account.  This email will give you the instructions and an important link you will need to setup your alumni email account… but you needn’t wait for that note, you can do it NOW/today by going here (as long as your “today” is after your official graduation date).
  • Note that student email accounts are disabled 90 days after the student’s commencement date (the day of the graduation ceremony).
  • Once an account is deactivated the data/emails in that account it is not recoverable.

emailBut there’s good news. You’re an alumnus now!  Alumni may obtain a free, email account through Pepperdine’s Alumni Association. You can find more information on Alumni Email at this website.

Part of this process also includes instructions on how to easily migrate your Pepperdine Google Drive contents to a new Alumni Google Drive account!  The best benefit? UNLIMITED STORAGE!

After your student email address expires, no mail will be received at your student address. To make a smooth transition, the Alumni Association recommends:

  1. Set up your new alumni e-mail address immediately when you get that email noted above.
  2. Forward your mail in Wavenet to a new email address — that new alumni address or another one you prefer. (Note that forwarding will only work up until your student email account is suspended.)
  3. Set up an out-of-office message in your Pepperdine Student Email (accessed through Wavenet) account informing all your contacts of your graduation and of your new email address. Log into Wavenet click on Options, and then update your Out of Office Assistant.

Upload Exam File

  1. Begin by taking clear pictures of your exam pages with your phone. Ensure that each page has your exam ID written on it as well as the page number (e.g. Page 1 of 5). The pictures should not cut off any corners of the pages, or obscure what is written in any way. See examples below.

2. Send your photos to your computer. Two easy ways to do this are through airdrop, if your computer is compatible, or email.

3. Navigate to the “Accounting and Finance Final Exam Upload” google form. For the third question, choose “add file” and then “select file from your device.”

4. Select your file from your computer. Only choose one of your pages per submission; you will need to fill out a new google form for each page.

5. Select “open” and your file should appear as attached. Submit the document and repeat for other pages.

Zoom: A Guide for Students

Pepperdine University has a university-wide site license for the popular video conferencing product, Zoom, for all students, faculty and staff at Pepperdine. This site is great for joining or hosting meetings, study groups, workspaces and webinars–whether it be for attending a remote class lecture or creating a personal audio/video chat.

Usage and Benefits

As opposed to FaceTime’s often unreliable quality of connection when conversing with multiple users, Zoom’s webinar feature allows you to host large online events with video, audio and screen sharing for up to 100 participants and 10,000 viewers (note that the webinar feature is dependent upon special access to a webinar license – make sure to coordinate your event through the Caruso Law Events Team). Or just use the regular Zoo meeting functionality for remote club meetings or group project sessions! You may even record and save a meeting (with a complete transcript) on your local device or to the Cloud.

Note that Zoom is more than just a competitor to other video conferencing products like FaceTime and Skype. It also integrates seamlessly into your Google Calendar if you use Google Chrome for your browser. It also can be used as a telephone alternative and/or a conference phone system, so there is no need to use the video component if you don’t need or want that feature.

Downloads and Installation

Students automatically have a Pepperdine University account under their user name and password via Central Authentication Service (CAS). To log-in and use the online web browser version, simply go to https://pepperdine.zoom.us/ and use the SSO (single sign-on) option. If you are prompted for a “domain” enter Pepperdine.

You may also install the Zoom browser extension on to your personal computer. Once the Zoom extension for the Chrome Browser is installed, you can schedule a Zoom meeting right from your Google Calendar! This feature automatically fills in the Zoom meeting link and other information including optional phone numbers for folks to dial in from a regular phone to participate in your meeting.

You need to log into Pepperdine Zoom SSO before starting your course Zoom session.

Here are the steps to ensure your name is showing up in Zoom.

Step 1. Go to Pepperdine Zoom website at pepperdine.zoom.us

Step 2. Log in with your Pepperdine network account at the CAS/SSO log in page.
