Access to email is closed during February following the year of graduation. Alumni may configure a Lafayette email forward (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org) by joining the Alumni Online Community as described on the Alumni website. The NetID remains open to provide access to IT Services for Alumni. Students who transfer out or resign from the College retain all access for thirty days following the date effective provided by the Office of Advising and Co-Curricular Programs. The NetID remains active for Banner Self-Service access.
Accounts will be disabled on the termination date specified by Human Resources in the Accounts Workflow Termination Request. When it is anticipated that College business-related emails may continue to be sent, hiring supervisors may request a temporary, thirty-day auto-reply on a former employee’s email account to instruct senders where to direct such business. Requests are made to the Help Desk and should include the content for the auto-reply.
For full-time faculty with a termination date of June 30, access to services is removed on August 31 of the same year. For other faculty, access is removed the day following the date provided by the Office of the Provost in the Accounts Workflow Termination Request. The NetID remains active to allow for access to Self-Service Banner.
Faculty emeriti and other retirees
For faculty voted to emeriti status, access to all services, including email and with the exception of departmental files shares, is retained in perpetuity. Access to departmental shares is removed the day following the transfer date provided by the Office of the Provost in the Accounts Workflow Transfer Request. Access to personal file shares remains in place. In addition, the account will be added to a retiree and emeriti email list.
For all other faculty and staff retirees who wish to retain access to Lafayette services, requests must be submitted to Human Resources in writing via email or letter for authorization. Once authorized, the account will change from active to non-emeriti retiree status. These accounts will retain email access, network access on-campus, and access to Banner Self-Service, and the account will be added to a retiree and emeriti email list.
