Who will be affected?

Throughout July and August 2018, all affected accounts will receive reminder email messages regarding the August 2018 transition.

Your account will be affected by the August 18, 2018 transition if you do not yet have an SFU Mail account, and you are currently receiving new email messages in SFU Connect (https://connect.sfu.ca). More specifically, you will be affected if:

  • you are an existing student (undergraduate or graduate) with no other active staff/faculty role at SFU, or
  • you are a retiree with no other active staff/faculty role at SFU.

Your account will not be affected by the August 18, 2018 transition if you are already using SFU Mail (https://mail.sfu.ca). More specifically, no action is needed from you if:

  • you are a new staff or faculty member and you activated your SFU Computing ID on or after April 21st, 2018,
  • you are a newly-admitted student who started in Summer 2018, or will be starting in Fall 2018, or
  • your account was transitioned to SFU Mail on April 28, 2018 with the staff/faculty/sponsored accounts.

What will be migrated?

Due to limitations in the migration software, certain types of data and settings won't be migrated from SFU Connect to SFU Mail. See what will or will not be migrated from SFU Connect to SFU Mail.

Training and Information Sessions

Training and information sessions for all faculty and staff members will be held by IT Services in the coming months to inform and prepare users for the migration. Attendees may join in person, or online via live stream (webinar format).
