Departing Students

Are you leaving William & Mary?  We are sad to see you go, but excited for the adventure that lies ahead of you. With this move, comes a lot of questions about what happens next.  While we don't know where your next steps may take you, we can tell you what will happen with your access to W&M Information Technology services after you leave the university.  

(This list applies to anyone who has recently departed W&M and alumni that graduated after 2007.  If you graduated prior to 2007, contact the Technology Support Center for details.)

Google Workspace Account

If you had a degree conferred from the university, you will continue to have access to your Google Workspace account. This applies to all Google Workspace services, such as email and Google Drive.

Note: Google email (Gmail) and calendar are not included in new accounts. As W&M faculty and staff already have email in Microsoft Office 365, the newly-created Google Workspace apps are linked to the @wm.edu accounts instead.  Existing Gmail-enabled accounts will not change at this time. 

If you are leaving the university without a degree, will have access to your Google Workspace account for 8 months after your last class.

Banner

If you had a degree conferred from the university, you will be able to use Banner after you leave W&M. Please note that your W&M account's password will expire annually and you will receive notifications to change your password via email.

If you are leaving the university without a degree, will have access to Banner for 8 months after your last class.

Blackboard

Blackboard will expire 8 months after your last class at W&M.

Microsoft Office

You will be able to use the W&M licensed version of Microsoft Office until 8 months after your last class at W&M. After this time period, you will only be able to use Microsoft Office as a read-only program. To continue to create and edit documents, you may purchase Microsoft Office.

Make sure you download a copy of your OneDrive or OneNote data prior to the license expiration.

Home Drive (H: Drive)

Your H: Drive (for on-campus file storage) will also expire 8 months after your last class at W&M. Make sure to move your files to another storage service (like Google Drive in your Google Workspace account) before the service expires!

Zoom (Pro License)

Your access to William & Mary's Zoom Pro license will expire 7 days after graduation or leaving the university.  Your account will automatically change to a basic/free account and is accessible as long as your W&M account stays active.
