Graduating Student Information

Students that are officially graduating, please be aware of the following information.

Click here, if you are not officially graduating and are no longer registered for classes.
  • Watch your UWSP email account for messages from the UWSP Postmaster warning you about the pending removal of your account. These messages will include the exact date your account will be removed. Below are the general guidelines:
    • If you are officially graduating in Fall or Winterim your UWSP network account will remain active until the start of the following fall semester (about the 3rd week into the semester). Example: If you graduated in December 2010 your account would remain active until about the third week into the fall 2011 semester.
    • If you are officially graduating in Spring or Summer your UWSP network account will remain active until the start of the following spring semester (about the 3rd week into the semester). Example: If you graduated in May 2010 your account would remain active until about the third week into the spring 2011 semester.
  • Information Technology cannot restore files once your UWSP account has become inactive. Make copies of any files you may need before your account is removed, you will be unable to retrieve this information once your account is gone. A convenient and inexpensive way to create a backup of your files is to save them to external storage media such as a CD or key/flash drive.
Now that I have officially graduated, what technology services remain available to me until my network account is removed?
