About UITS computing account termination

Also, see Lifecycle of typical computing accounts from creation to deletion.

  • Discontinuing or graduating students: See At IU, what happens to my student computing accounts when I graduate, leave the university, transfer to another campus, or study abroad?
  • Employee resignation: When faculty or staff members resign, their ADS accounts remain active so the employees may access their current W-2s. Access to other central systems is automatically disabled following resignation, and accounts are ultimately deleted. The ADS account will remain active for approximately one year (or long enough thereafter to obtain any required W-2 paperwork from IU). The chair or immediate supervisor is responsible for instructing employees to dispose of account contents appropriately.

    Note: Retired faculty and staff receive account privileges indefinitely.

  • Terminated employees: When the university terminates faculty or staff employment, the ADS account still remains active by default, in order to provide that employee access to the current W-2. The ADS account will remain active for approximately one year (or long enough thereafter to obtain any required W-2 paperwork from IU). Access to other central systems is automatically disabled following resignation, and accounts are ultimately deleted. The chair or immediate supervisor is responsible for instructing employees to dispose of account contents appropriately, or for requesting that all accounts for the terminated employee be disabled. That request should be directed to the University Information Policy Office.
  • Computer abuse sanction: After due process, if the relevant university office (e.g., Dean of Students, Dean of Faculties, Human Resources) determines that computer account abuse necessitates loss of computing account privileges, accounts are disabled.
