You made it through!  Upon graduation, you will notice that things are changing for you.  This applies not only to your status as a person holding a prestigious degree, deference from family members, and a lot of attention from student loan officers, but also your status at Pepperdine has changed.  And, that’s a great thing.  But it’s change that you need to address.  Particularly with respect to your student email account.

Please note that upon graduation, your access to your Pepperdine Zoom, WaveNet, student email and all other services related to your WaveNet credentials will be deactivated a little over 90 days later.

All graduates will get reminder notices about their pending account suspension from an automated system 90 days, 60 days, and the final notice 30 days from their student email and network resources deactivation date.


Student email accounts, WaveNet, and other network-related resources are governed by university policy and managed by the university IT department.

Typically, student email accounts, WaveNet access, printing, Zoom, etc. would be deactivated 90 days after the 15th of the month following the date of graduation.

In these unprecedented circumstances, this date is being pushed further out.  We do not yet have a fixed date for this but it is presently set to be 90 days after commencement. That’s the graduation ceremony, not the official graduation date which for Spring 2020 is 5/15/2020.

At some point, recent graduates’ student email accounts will be deactivated by the university. When the commencement date is set, recent graduates will receive automated notifications in their student email inboxes 90, 60 and 30 days before account deactivation.

We strongly recommend that new alumni opt-in to the Pepperdine alumni Google Suite which includes unlimited Google Drive storage and email for life.

It’s a good idea to plan ahead for this. Please see this site for more information:

Please make sure that you have an alternate email address setup. When you have your alternate address, put that alternate address in an auto reply/auto response message on your Pepperdine student email account to ensure that those who are attempting to reach you (prospective employers, lottery prize award officials, etc.) can do so via your new address.

If you are interested in getting a Pepperdine Alumni email account you can begin that process after graduation here:

The above link will also provide helpful instructions on how to move your current student email contents, Google Drive contents, and contact information to a different email account.
