Question:     What happens to all of the old e-mails, attachments and folders when my mailbox expires?  Will I still be able to access them, or do I have to forward them to another e-mail account?
Answer:     Once an MBA or Specialty Masters student graduates, you keep your @umd.edu account, it's as simple as that! If you want to export your data out, go to http://dataliberation.org and see how the Google engineers recommend saving your data.


Note that we can only guarantee the accounts being hosted on Google while we maintain a contract with them. Currently, due to decisions made at the University level, we are changing platforms. 

Question:     How long will I have access to Canvas course material?
Answer:     Per university guidelines, access to Canvas course material will be available for one semeter after graduation (generally, six months after graduation), therefore you should consider making a local copy of your course material prior to your departure.

Question:     When does my University Directory ID expire?
Answer:     Your access to campus computing systems will be disabled approximately nine months after your graduation date.
