Information for Departing Students
Your Friars email address will remain active. However, all other aspects of Office 365 will be terminated on August 1. The most important change that you need be aware of is the loss of your OneDrive. If you have files stored on your OneDrive, you should back them up to your personal computer. If you use desktop sync, your files will remain on your personal computer, but will stop syncing with OneDrive.
Network Account and Network Storage
If you are a graduating senior, your network account will remain active until the September following your graduation.
If you are transferring out of Providence College or leaving the college in any other way, your account will remain active only until the IT department has been notified of your departure. It should be assumed that your last day as a student at the college is the last day your account will remain active.
You should back up any information you may have saved to your network drive (or G: drive). You can access your drive from the computers in our computer labs or the library. You can then save your files to a CD-R, a USB flash drive, or an online storage solution (such as Google Drive, OneDrive, or Dropbox). We strongly recommend against emailing files to yourself as a means of backup.
Because your network account is also used to access Sakai, you will lose access to that when your account is deactivated.
If you purchased Microsoft Office or Windows, you can continue to use those pieces of software indefinitely.
