FAQ:

Will I have a new email account/Need to move messages to maintain access?

No. Your NCU account & mailbox has become your Bushnell account as of July 1, 2020. All message history will be intact. The main noticeable difference is that when you send mail, it will go out from your username@bushnell.edu.

What do I need to do after the change?

You'll need to start signing in with @bushnell.edu for Office 365 email, BeaconLearning, and other services. Additionally, if you share documents with OneDrive, you will need to re-share these documents.

Will my old emails from @nwcu.edu be forwarded to the new address?

No need! Things sent to you@nwcu.edu will keep coming to you automatically.

Can I keep my address for a while?

Yes - messages will keep coming for @nwcu.edu for about 5 months, but the organization that controls .EDU domains controls how long we can be both bushnell.edu & nwcu.edu.

Will my username be the same?

Yes. If your email adddress/username is tstudent@nwcu.edu today, you'll become tstudent@bushnell.edu

There's a long list. Modern student tools, like being able to update your contact information, perform degree audits, and new course registration features. Additionally, the portal is mobile responsive, which makes smartphone access much easier.
