Guest Account Renewal

Modified on: Fri, Jul 30, 2021 8:37 AM

Guest Accounts have a maximum lifespan of one-year and can be renewed. 

Before the expiration date arrives, the responsible party of the account will receive an 'Account Expiration' email from Information Systems. 

  • If the account is still in use and needs to be extended, you may simply reply to the email received, letting us know that you would like to keep it active. 
    • Or you may submit a service request -

  • If the account is no longer in use, please respond to the email letting us know that it can be deleted from our system. 

The email specifics are below:
