Deactivation, Service continuation for graduates who continue UIUC affiliation
As long as you are with the university, your NetID will stay the same, and any password you have should not change.
I am a graduating senior but I will continue to be affilated with UIUC as an employee or grad student. What will change about my email, file storage, or other accounts?
You will need to make sure that your appointment goes through payroll if you will be employed, or that you are registered for classes if you will continue as a student. Your email address will stay the same (netID@illinois.edu). Access to services such as U of I Box should not be affected, given that all hiring and admission protocols are followed.
As a staff member you will be converted to an Exchange account as opposed to Google Apps. You will receive a notification via email that a mailbox has been created. Once created it can be accessed via outlook.office365.com.
If you have any trouble creating the account please contact the Help Desk.
