Scenario #1

  1. Go to dropbox.umich.edu and log in via U-M Weblogin.
  2. Select Transfer to University of Michigan when prompted.

Scenario #2

  2. Enter your @umich.edu email address and your personal account password. You will then receive an email invite to migrate your account to the U-M Dropbox domain. You will be given the option to Combine Accounts or keep them separate.

If the invite in Scenario #2 fails:

The invite will fail if you are already a part of a non-UM Dropbox Team. You can choose to:

  2. Change the email address used with your personal Dropbox account to a non-UMICH email address.
  3. Not create a U-M Dropbox account.
