How long will my computing accounts remain active?

  • Graduating students - accounts will remain active for sixty days after graduation.
  • Students who do not re-enroll - accounts will remain active for 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 separation date or last work date (whichever is more recent).

When my computing account is inactivated, what happens to the associated data?

The data will remain in the account for a period of time until the account is due to be purged. See When will the IT Support Center purge my account in this FAQ (below) for further details.

When will the IT Support Center purge my account?

For students, the purge process is completed 180 days after graduation. For employees, both faculty and non-faculty, the accounts are purged 180 dates from the inactivation date.

Is there an e-mail forwarding service for students after graduation?

Yes, IUP currently offers graduates accounts provided by Microsoft for alumni.  Please visit our IUP Live Mail account page for details.
