Leaving Campus, When are accounts deactivated for non-registered students or those who didn't graduate?
If you leave the University without graduating, your email account and network access will be deactivated a year after the beginning of your last registered semester. Students on an approved leave of absence from their college or academic department can be reactivated at the request of their department.
I'm not registered but I would still like to have access to my account.
To be considered registered at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, you must register for at least one class through the Banner Enterprise Self-Registration tool. You can register for zero credit hours and still be considered a registered student. If you're a graduate student pursuing an advanced degree and have chosen not to register for a semester, you may be eligible for continued email and network services if sponsored by your department. The department will need to provide the Technology Services Help Desk with a request from your advisor (or someone of authority) stating your need for continued services and for how long. Please have them email email@example.com.
If you are not eligible for services and need temporary access to your account to retrieve files, the Technology Services Help Desk can activate your account for 24 hours. Notify the Help Desk on the day that you would like it activated by calling 217-244-7000 or emailing.
You may also redirect any email sent to your @illinois.edu address to forward to another email address of your choice. You can do this by going to the Electronic Editor at https://ede.cites.illinois.edu/. This will allow you to receive any email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
