Note to current students 

  • Miami strongly recommends that you not forward your email to another account while you are a Miami student. Miami uses email as a method of transmitting official University communications and relies on students to check email regularly. By forwarding your email, you run the risk of blocked attachments, full mailboxes, and potential exposure of confidential data
