Computer Account Retention


Computer accounts are available for IUP students, faculty members, and staff. When a student graduates from the university or an employee leaves the university, his or her computer account is available for a period of time as determined by the IUP Central Computing Account Retention Procedures.


  • Accounts are inactivated 60 days from their date of graduation.
  • Accounts are purged 180 days (six months) from their date of graduation.

Students are sent a reminder e-mail message two weeks before an account is inactivated.

For students who do not re-enroll, accounts are inactivated after approximately one year for undergraduate students, and approximately six months for graduate students.


  • Faculty, non-faculty, and non-student-employee (staff) accounts are inactivated the same day as the termination date or last work date (whichever is more recent).
  • All employee accounts (both faculty and non-faculty) are purged 180 days (six months) from the inactivation date.
