Congrats, 2023 graduates! What happens to your student accounts, data, and software when you leave IU?

UITS news for May 3, 2023

What happens to your IU accounts once you graduate?

Access and retain your data before you leave IU.

  • IU email will remain active for now but will be disabled after two consecutive unenrolled terms.
  • You can keep IU software already installed on your computer, but when no longer enrolled, you will not be able to download university software.
  • You will retain access to bills, transcripts, and financial aid.

(updated) Mail forwarding is not going away—we are changing how you manage your email forwarding 

We would like to offer clarification regarding the recent update on email forwarding, as mentioned in the May 3 UITS Monitor. Most importantly, this change will not affect your ability to forward emails to recipients outside of IU on an individual basis. However, the “Forward email” option for external addresses will be removed from the Manage Your Email portal. After May 16, if you wish to set up email forwarding to external addresses, you will need to create new forwarding rules in your Outlook mailbox. It’s important to note that if you have existing forwards set up using the Manage Your Email portal, they will not be removed as part of the update on May 16. 

UITS will communicate directly with owners of affected accounts about these changes.
