Account Inactivation

When leaving the university W&M accounts are inactivated based on the following criteria:

  • Students - 8 months after the end of the last enrolled semester.  Alumni accounts do not expire.
  • Faculty - 10 months after the end of the last term the instructor had a teaching assignment.  Emeritus faculty accounts do not expire.
  • Staff - Based on the employee's termination date.
  • Affiliates - Active for a maximum of 12 months. At the end of 12 months, the department can request an extension for up to another 12 months.

You will be notified that your account will be inactivated through an email sent to your William & Mary email account.  You will receive the notification six weeks prior to inactivation, and again two weeks prior to inactivation.

Need an Extension? Your department may request an extension via Request IT if your status is changing to inactive. (Note: the Office of the Dean of Students must provide authorization to extend accounts for any undergraduate student.)

Returning to W&M? If you return to William & Mary your account will automatically be re-activated based on certain conditions, such as rehire, return from Leave of Absence, or re-admission IF your account was inactivated after March 1, 2007. If your account was inactivated prior to March 1, 2007, then a new account will be generated for you when you return.
