Email Migration Update & More

Upcoming Email Migration

We have not been provided any new information about the migration. We are still under the impression that it will take place during spring break.

The only change we are currently aware of is the requirement to log in with a new username ending with and the associated University System password (same one used to access Employee Self-Service pay stubs and leave balances, and PeopleSoft). The password for this account will need to be reset every 90 days. Email sent to and addresses will be delivered to your new account, so you may continue to publicize your address.

For more information and the latest updates on the migration, please visit the NDSU Help Desk migration page.

Please Be Virus and Malware Aware

Computer viruses can pop up unexpectedly and are capable of more than just a slight inconvenience to you and your data. Recently several organizations, including hospitals and libraries, were forced to pay tens of thousands of dollars to have their computer systems unlocked after malware infiltrated their networks and held their computers and data for ransom.

Here are some tips to help protect yourself:

  • Keep current backups of all important data.
  • Make sure your antivirus program is updated and scanning regularly. Ag Comm Computer Services-supported computers do this automatically.
  • Avoid clicking on links or opening attachments in suspicious emails or websites.
  • Don't download and run unknown software.
  • If you suspect your computer might be (or is) infected, please right away.
  • Any time you feel your password may have been compromised (infected computer, clicked on a phishing link, etc.) please change your password right away.
