Subj: New User Account Policy Change

 

A User Account Policy change will take effect immediately due to Microsoft’s new licensing considerations in which Capital University is now required to close user accounts, including e-mail and account services (ex: WebAdvisor, iLearn, etc.) for students who have graduated or stopped attending Capital University.  The updated User Account Policy can be found online at https://www.capital.edu/information-technology-policies/.

The “Email for Life” model for Capital students will no longer be offered as a service due to licensing costs and restrictions.  Licenses for student accounts that require a connection to Capital’s active directory server (provides authentication and authorization to systems and services), are only for current students registered for classes. After graduation, account licenses must be reassigned back to the Capital’s licensing pool and reassigned to incoming students.

Students affected by this policy change will need to migrate their Capital digital content into a preferred personal e-mail service or digital repository to ensure they do not lose any important records or communications. Students who have recently graduated from Capital will have 120 days from their graduation date to migrate their digital content. All other graduates prior to this term will have until June 16, 2019.  Exceptions will be made for law school students that corresponds with bar exam requirements and for students with special circumstances.

Because all students and graduates are valued members of our Capital family and community, we do not want to lose contact with them and ask that you help communicate and refer them to update their contact information with Capital’s online alumni community as soon as possible.
