Student Network Account Removal

If you are no longer enrolled in UWSP courses or have officially graduated, your UWSP account will be scheduled for deletion.  Your account will be scheduled for removal 18 months after the beginning of the last term you were officially registered. 

For example:
  • If you enrolled for courses in January 2016 for the Spring term and you either graduated in May 2017 or did not register for future courses, your account will be scheduled for removal in July 2018.
  • If you enrolled for courses in June 2017 for the Fall term and you graduated in December 2018 or did not register for future courses, your account will be scheduled for removal in November 2018.
  • If you enrolled for a summer course in May, but do not register for a future term course, your account will be scheduled for removal the following year in November.
  • If you enrolled for a winter course in December, but do not register for a future term course, your account will be scheduled for removal the following year in June.

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.   

Once your account has been removed you will no longer be able to log on to campus computers and you will no longer have access to secure UWSP resources, including, but not limited to:
  • Email - If you are subscribed to any listserves or RSS feeds, we encourage you to unsubscribe your UWSP account from these lists.

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 or a Cloud service.

If you are a graduate student not currently enrolled in any courses, but still associated with the University in one of the graduate programs, contact your advisor/graduate coordinator about enrolling in a 0-credit research course through Registration and Records to keep your account active beyond the 18 months timeframe outlined above. (Note: This applies only to Graduate students. This does not apply to students that have officially graduated from UWSP.)
