My email account for this account is going to get removed at the end of this week, as it is my school account and I'm leaving school. I would like it be changed to another email address, but I have another account on that email address but its not as good as this account.

Could I change it over from this account to the other? And keep my rankings and everything else?

Don't rely on just changing your email; instead, I'd suggest just getting a Gmail account and add that in "my logins". Remember, email != login. They're completely different things, and when you add Gmail as your login, you'll click "Login with Google" to login instead of "Login with Stack Exchange".

This is OAuth, vs just logging in by typing your username and password each time.

Hope this helps! :) And check out that link from Aziz. See the "my logins" all the way on the right? That's what you want. :)
