Senior Legacy:

Each year Notre Dame seniors participate in a tradition where they rally behind the students who will follow in their footsteps.

After Graduation:

Don’t Lose Access to Your ND Files After You Graduate!

Your Notre Dame NetID will be deactivated 60 days after you graduate. Be sure to transfer the files and other resources you want to keep from your Notre Dame student account to a personal account, such as your Notre Dame alumni account. You will be receiving communication from the Alumni Association in the coming weeks regarding your new alumni email account. Any other files and resources from other applications associated with your Notre Dame NetID should be transferred to a personal account or stored on your personal computer in order to retain access to them.
