The Information Technology Department for the past year has been working on increasing efficiencies in the Account Management processes for the College. Two changes have been made so far to the process. One change is to create only a single account (identity) per person. In the past if a person was an employee and also taking a class that person would have been assigned two identities. One format being lastname_firstinitial and the other as firstinitialmiddleinitiallastname. The change to a single account solves several problems including:
The second change that was made to Account Management process is to use only a single identity naming format going forward. It was determined that the best format to use is the format firstinitialmiddleinitiallastname. This format was chosen for several reasons:
If you currently have an account name which includes the underscore and you wish to replace it with the current naming convention, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. The IT department will work with you to make the necessary changes.
Existing Faculty and Staff are grandfathered in and will continue to use their account which includes the underscore.
Expired email accounts cannot be forwarded to other accounts.
Students who graduate become inactive after census date two terms after their graduation term. For account purposes, the three summer terms are considered as one term. For example, accounts for May graduates will become inactive the following January after Winter census.
Accounts for students registered for fall semester will expire the day after census date of the following winter term, if the student has not registered for the winter term by that date.
Accounts for students registered for winter semester or any summer session will expire the day after census date of the following fall term, if the student has not registered for the fall term by that date.
Accounts will expire the day following when any particular student drops all classes before the end of any term.
