Details regarding the length of access to ONID accounts.
You will always receive a warning email before your ONID account is deactivated. These are the rules used to determine how long you can keep your ONID account:
- One term after you were last eligible to register, your account is deactivated.
- Two terms after you were last eligible to register, your account is removed.
- For example, if you were eligible to register for Spring term, your ONID account would be deactivated Fall term and removed Winter term.
- Exception: Students who have graduated will retain their ONID accounts for one (1) year after their graduation date.
- Two months after your employee status is "terminated" your account is deactivated.
- One term after your account is deactivated your account is removed.
- For example, if you were terminated July 31, 2002, your ONID account would be deactivated on September 30, 2002 and removed Winter term 2003.
Any email forwarding you have defined on your ONID account will continue to work until the time your ONID account is removed. If you are not forwarding your ONID email, we recommend setting up email forwarding before your ONID account is deactivated.
