Graduating 3L? LexisNexis access for you after graduation…

–From our friends at LexisNexis–

LexisNexis Graduate Access:

Graduating 3Ls have continued access to Lexis upon graduation to keep their skills up to date and use for job and interview preparation.

The Graduate Program gives extended access to Lexis Advance to spring graduates via their law school IDs through December 31, 2019.

This ID also grants them access to the Graduate Home Page and gives them a graduation gift (detailed in the flyer).

The transition from a regular law school ID to a graduate ID happens on July 5, 2019.

Read the flyer (linked below) for more information, including special services for those employed by a 501(c)(3) organization.

Graduating 3Ls — WaveNet/Email Access Suspends 8/15/2019

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

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 WaveNet and all other services related to your WaveNet credentials will be suspended 90 days later. This suspension also applies to your Pepperdine University student email account.

This year’s graduation date for the School of Law is May, 17, 2019.

The access suspension date for the School of Law May 2019 graduates will be August 15, 2019.

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

Please make sure that you have an alternate email address setup with an auto reply with that information 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.

If you are interested in getting a Pepperdine Alumni email account you can begin that process here: https://community.pepperdine.edu/it/alumni/email/

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.

Alumni Email? Get your account (after you get that email)!

Hurray! You’ve graduated from Pepperdine Law! The last thing on your mind is your Pepperdine Email account, but there are some things you need to know…

  • 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 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.
  • Note that student email accounts are deleted 90 days after the student’s last enrolled semester (90 days from the time of your entry into the alumni system — typically less than a month after Graduation day).
  • Once an account is deleted/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!

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.
  3. Set up an out-of-office message in your Pepperdine 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.
