OUH Account Migration Information

On July 1, 2022, OU Health employees will lose email access to their OUHSC.EDU account. OU IT has prepared the following article to help answer questions regarding the impact of this OU Health initiated change.

What will change?

  • You will no longer have access to view, send, or receive email using your OUHSC.EDU address
  • You will be unable to access OUHSC shared mailboxes or act as a delegate on an OUHSC account

What will not change?

  • Aside from email, permissions and access to University resources will not change for your OUHSC.EDU username and password. OU IT has taken a proactive approach and worked with departments across the University to ensure service remains available.

The University and OU Health understand the importance of communication and have established a GAL Sync which enables user contact information to be visible and available to each organization.
