Keeping your Account Active

When you create your account, there is an option to create a calendar alert. We suggest that you do this.

  • Faculty must re-authenticate their account at 180 days or 364 days or the account will automatically close. It is suggested that when creating an account, also create a calendar alert for when the account is about to expire.
  • Students do not have to re-authenticate but must put in their anticipated graduation date when creating an account.
