  • You do not need to opt in to keep it after you graduate.  
  • You must log in at least once every 90 days to avoid having your UBmail deactivate.

    • If you don't log in after 2 more weeks, you will be sent another reminder.
    • If you don't log in at least once in 90 days, your UBmail Powered by Google deactivates.
