Account Expirations

Student accounts automatically expire at the end of the semester if not renewed. Staff and GA accounts do not automatically expire.

When Do Accounts Expire?

Student accounts are set to automatically expire at the end of the current account period based on when the account was created. These expiration dates coincide with the university calendar periods of spring, fall and summer.

Expiration Dates: May 31, September 30, December 31

Note: If the account is created within four weeks of the expiration date the expiration date will be set for the end of the next period.


Staff accounts and GA accounts do not expire. Please review these accounts yearly to ensure appropriate access, especially if the job role has changed. Follow steps to disable these accounts when a position is terminated.

Partner accounts do not expire. Some custom software allows access to users outside of Student Affairs. Follow steps to disable these accounts when access is no longer needed.


Expired accounts will be deleted after 6 months. Data located in the public folder located at R:\Staff\<NetID> or R:\Student\<NetID>  will be accessible until the account is disabled.
