Office 365 Account FAQs

How long do I have access to my account?

Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Undergraduates and graduate students have access to their office 365 e-mail account throughout their enrollment.  Should a student take a break or stop enrolling in classes, they will lose access to their account.  

"What happens if I take a semester off?"  

  • Students who are taking a semester off should enroll for an hour of continuing registration to maintain their library and email access.
  • If students go 2+ semesters without enrolling at all, they will need to re-apply to the University through the admissions online process to be able to resume taking classes.  More information can be found here
