Accounts - Account provisioning for students

Account provisioning and disablement schedule for UW-Platteville on-campus and online students. This schedule does not apply to students enrolled in UW-Platteville's print-based distance learning program.



Disablement

Network accounts for students are disabled according to the schedule below. You will receive an email 30 days prior to your account being disabled. See below for tips on "Preparing for account disablement".


Note: This schedule does not apply to students enrolled in UW-Platteville's print-based distance learning program.

Free Office applications will also expire

If you have downloaded any of the free Office applications associated with your UW-Platteville Office 365 account, these too will expire when your account is disabled. NOTE: Microsoft determines exactly when software access expires and may do so without notice; UW-Platteville has no control over the exact date of software expiration. 

Before you graduate, you may want to check out the WISC Software Catalog (includes Microsoft) to purchase software at discounted prices. NOTE: This software is only available to purchase while you are an active student. More information is posted at https://www.uwplatt.edu/help-desk/purchasing-technology

Preparing for account disablement

By planning accordingly, you can avoid missed email, lost files, and disrupted workflow. Before your account is disabled:


Permanent deletion

When your UW-Platteville account is disabled, your Office 365 account and its contents will be permanently deleted. After 18 months, your UW-Platteville account will be permanently deleted along with the contents of your home directory (J:\).
