2016 Graduates final notice that your IT accounts are being retired tonight

Dear 2016 Alumni,

The countdown is over. Tonight your DePauw IT Accounts are being retired. Please see the original email found below for details. 

It has been a pleasure supporting your technology needs as you pursued your education at DePauw University. We wish you the very best that life has to offer.

Original email sent on 4/12/2016:

SUBJECT: Preserve your email and other data from your DePauw IT Accounts now. #AnnounceIT

Dear Class of 2016,

As you are going through your graduation to-do list, schedule time to preserve your email and other data from your DePauw IT accounts. In the following, you will learn the timeline for when your primary DePauw IT accounts will no longer be available to you, resources you can use to preserve email and other data, and information on services available to DePauw alumni.

DePauw IT Account Access will retire on October 31, 2016

Be sure you save any documents you wish to keep from your class (I:) drive, personal (P:) drive, and Web (W:) drive before the end of October 2016.

To request a transcript after October 31, 2016, browse to the transcript ordering portal on the Registrar’s Transcripts website.

Google Apps (email, calendar, drive, etc.)
Download a copy of the Google Apps data you want to keep, including your email, calendar, and more, by going into My Account → Control your content → Copy or move your content → Create archive found in the Download your data section. Once started, archives may take a few minutes, several hours, or days to create depending on how much data you have selected to download. Be sure to start this process before the middle of October 2016 so there is plenty of time for your archive to be completed. Watch the Download your Google Data [How to] video on YouTube to learn more.

IT Recommendation Checklist and Resources

You can also find a helpful IT recommendation checklist that includes additional resources at Graduating Senior Accounts. These tips will guide you through setting up a personal email account, updating online account information (e.g., checking account, credit card, cell phone password recovery, etc.) so that you do not lose access to them after your DePauw IT accounts are retired on 10/31/2016, how you can let others know your new contact information, and more.
