In accordance with Clemson University’s Username and Password Policy, one year after graduation, your Clemson Username will be deactivated. This means all your access to Clemson student resources will no longer be available.
We suggest you prepare with the following steps before you graduate:
- Backup all of your personal data on your laptop and bring it by the CCIT Customer Support Center in the Cooper Library for a final hardware check and re-image.
- Save a copy of your unofficial transcript. After your Username is deactivated, you will no longer be able to access your unofficial transcript. Instead, you will have to request an official copy for a fee, as directed by the Registrar’s transcripts page.
- Save a copy of your tax records. After your Username is deactivated, you will no longer be able to access iRoar for your billing information. If your account is deactivated and you need to get these records, contact CCIT at (864)656-3494.
All Clemson University students have access to Microsoft Office as part of Clemson University’s site licensing agreement. Our agreement also allows us to reinstall Microsoft Windows on your laptop when the need arises. Once you graduate, you will no longer qualify to reinstall Clemson’s site-licensed software. Alumni are eligible for a discounted Microsoft Office 365 Personal license, available at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/alumni-discount.
Google Workspace for Education (http://g.clemson.edu)
Since fall 2008, all new students have been automatically provisioned with a Google Workspace (formerly Google Apps) account. An important feature is that your Google Workspace account will be available indefinitely. After you graduate, you should have people send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that forwarding of email@example.com will cease soon after your username is deactivated, so make sure to let all your contacts know they should be sending to @g.clemson.edu instead of @clemson.edu.
Please note Google has made changes to their storage policy and storage is no longer unlimited. To account for this change, we will be disabling Google Drive for all alumni starting October 1st, 2021.
If you have any questions or need assistance with any of the things mentioned on this page, please feel free to email ITHELP@clemson.edu or call the CCIT Support Center at 864-656-3494.
