Continuing Students

  • Check email regularly this summer & maintain your password.
  • Have a backup for Duo authentication.
    • Consider purchasing a Duo token from the Madison CyberZone in case you lose your primary Duo device.
    • Getting a new phone? Be sure to install Duo on it!


Graduating Students

Your Dukes account will be deleted in October -- prepare now!

  • Copy any files/recordings you want to keep from OneDrive, Canvas, Zoom, or any other JMU application to your own personal storage.
  • Consider purchasing Microsoft Office for your personal use. Your access to installed versions of Microsoft 365 applications (Word, PowerPoint, etc.) that have been used with your Dukes account will no longer be accessible in October. Microsoft often will offer a discount for alumni.
  • Update your contact info in MyMadison. You should also print and/or save your tax forms & other important info for your records.
  • Consider establishing an auto-reply on your Dukes email, notifying senders that your account will soon be deleted.
