Student Network Account Removal

If you are no longer enrolled in UWSP courses or if you have officially graduated, your UWSP account will be scheduled for deletion. 

Your UWSP Account will be removed 18 months from the first day of your last term. 

For example:
  • If you enrolled for Spring 2017 and you either graduated in May 2017, or did not register for future courses: 
    • the first day of your final registered term begins in January, at the start of Spring 2017. 
    • Your account will be scheduled for removal in July 2018.  18 months from the start of the Spring 2017 semester.

Will I receive a notice that my account will be removed?

Yes. Watch your UWSP email 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 listservs or RSS feeds, we encourage you to unsubscribe your UWSP account from these lists.
  • MyFiles
  • Office 365 and OneDrive
  • myPoint
  • Printing
  • Network access
    • Guest network access is available to you once your UWSP account has been deleted. For more information visit the Guest Logon Accounts page and Network & Wireless page.
  • Wisconsin Integrated Software Catalog

If I need some files or emails after my account is removed can I still get to them?

No. Work stored in myFiles and your UWSP Office 365 account is deleted during account removal.

To prevent losing important work, make copies of any files you even suspect you may need.  You will be unable to retrieve your files once your account is gone.  Information Technology also cannot restore files or email once your UWSP account has been removed.

A convenient and inexpensive way to create a backup of your files is to save them to external storage media such as a CD, a key/flash drive or a Cloud service.

What should I do to prepare for account removal?

  • Begin informing any important contacts that your UWSP email address will no longer be available and provide them with an alternate email address they can use to contact you.
  • Request a UWSP Alumni email account by visiting https://give.uwsp.edu/alumni-email.
  • Make a copy of all of your files located in your private and inetpub folders. Once your account is removed you will be unable to retrieve this data.
  • Software licensed to UWSP must be removed. This may include any software listed here.
  • Additionally, be sure to remove any customized software settings or configurations specific to UWSP from your computer/mobile devices. This may include configurations such as UWSP email, myFiles, wireless, etc.
