Email forwarding

Create a lasting connection to St Andrews with your free alumni email address. The email forwarding service is available to all graduates and is the virtual equivalent of postal mail forwarding. 

Messages sent to your new address will be forwarded automatically to a personal email account you specify.

Please note: This is not a full email account and you will not be able to send messages from it. It is simply a forwarding service.

How to sign up for this service

Opt-in to use the service by signing in to the alumni email forwarding service page.

Opening the ‘alumni email forwarding service’ link will direct you to a Single Sign-on page. Sign into this page using the computer / email account username and password you used whilst studying at St Andrews.

If you cannot remember your username and/or password, please email with the following information:

  • Full current name and last name at time of graduation/leaving (please also include any middle names and maiden name if applicable)
  • Date of birth
  • Degree and year awarded (e.g. MLitt 2010)

Latin degree certificates

As a graduate you have the opportunity to purchase an exclusive Latin degree certificate - the perfect memento of your achievements at St Andrews. 

The decorative certificate is hand-scripted by a calligrapher and gold foil blocked on hand-made paper. Each certificate is individually signed by the Principal and Vice-Chancellor.

You can chose whether to include your class of honours or not and certificates are priced at £70 (excluding P&P).

Please note: Latin degree certificates are decorative only. Official duplicate degree certificates, endorsed academic transcripts and confirmation of degree letters should be ordered from Registry.
