Once you leave UGA, you are no longer eligible to use campus IT services, and you will lose access after a period of time.
You do not have to do anything to ensure that your account access is removed. EITS periodically disabled expired accounts to prevent unauthorized access to campus IT services.
Once your account access is removed, you will no longer be able to access UGAMail, campus wireless networks and other services that require a MyID and password. Forwarding your UGAMail to another address will no longer work.
If you know you are graduating soon or planning to leave UGA, there are a few steps you can take to prepare:
If you are a UGA faculty or staff member, your MyID account has no guarantees attached to it.
Once you leave UGA for another job, your MyID will be disabled and UGAMail account will be deleted.
Sometimes, departments will request that an ex-employee's MyID be terminated immediately. These requests are handled on a case-by-case basis and require verification in order to process.
Retired UGA faculty and staff retain their MyID and UGAMail accounts. However, they are no longer eligible to keep Office 365 applications and products connected to their @uga.edu email address.
Affiliates are individuals with MyIDs who do not have an official active record in a UGA HR or student system. Their MyID accounts must be sponsored by a UGA office, or by a current faculty or staff member. These sponsorships are typically created by first contacting the Office of Research or the UGACard Office for a UGA ID.
Examples of affiliates include employees at extension offices, some adjunct faculty, contractors and faculty/staff dependents. All affiliate MyID accounts have expiration dates, typically set for a year after the accounts are created.
If you have an affiliate MyID account, you will receive notice when your account is expired and due to be disabled. If you need to continue to keep your affiliation beyond your expiration date, your information must be extended by your sponsoring department. The department can do this by updating the information with the Office of Research or the UGACard Office. Once that is done, your sponsor may need to fill out a MyID re-enable request.
