Transitioning Digital Services for Graduating Seniors

Not a graduating senior? Becoming an employee? You might want a different page.

Here at Luther, we value our graduates and continually strive to provide meaningful ways for them to stay connected to each other and the Luther community. It’s also important to us that our graduates make a smooth transition to life after college, including with their digital services. To help with that process, here is important information:

If you are a September 2020 through August 2021 graduate:

  • Provide your personal non-Luther email account by completing the Graduate Contact form by Friday, May 7, 2021.
  • If you don’t already have a non-Luther email account, create one at mail.google.com.
  • Please continue to check your Luther email account for school-related email prior to graduation.
  • Norse Apps will no longer be available to you after December 1, 2021. Detailed steps can be found at Transitioning Norse Apps for Graduating Seniors.

Information for all other graduates:

  • Students graduating December 2019 and beyond will retain their Norse Apps account for about 6 months after their last day of attendance.
  • Current alumni who are not employees will retain their Norse Apps accounts at least through December 2021. This timeline is linked to an alumni engagement initiative that is under development.
  • Alumni who are Luther employees will not retain their Norse Apps account at such time as their Luther employment ends.
  • Luther alumni who begin working at Luther upon graduation will have a shorter window for transitioning their information.

Once you graduate from Luther and become a Luther alumnus/alumna, the following services will no longer be available to you:

  • Norse Apps (e.g. Google Email, Docs, etc.): Norse Apps will no longer be available to you according to the timeline list above. Prior to that date, you should transition any needed emails, contacts, or files to another account. We recommend that you create a Google account at mail.google.com if you don’t already have a non-Luther email account. You should also unlink your @luther.edu account from other services, such as online banking, online shopping, and social media. Detailed steps can be found at Transitioning Norse Apps for Graduating Seniors.
  • Office 365 Education: Office 365 Education will no longer be available. Move OneDrive content to another storage location.
  • LinkedIn Learning: LinkedIn Learning will no longer be accessible through linkedinlearning.luther.edu

The following services will continue to be available to you as an alumnus/alumna:
