Accounts and Access for Inactive Students
Services un/available for students post-graduation
Inactive Accounts: From the date of a student's degree conferral, a six month grace period begins in which the student retains access to all Rice resources as if they were still an active student. Once the six month grace period concludes, the student's role changes to that of an inactive student. During this time as an inactive student, some Rice resources will no longer function, for example access to VPN. The student will stay in the inactive state until part way through the annual deletion cycle which occurs once a year from December through February.
Email works for a few more months.
- Rice Gmail (undergrads)
- Rice Webmail (grad students)
You should plan your departure, when your Rice GSuite for Education account is deleted, any files you own or share will be lost. Take steps to backup or change ownership (especially if you share them Rice department).
Services that require both Authorization (Active or Inactive status in LDAP) and Authentication (NetID/password verification) will fail. This includes but is not limited to services, sites and apps like:
- Rice OWLS and EduROAM wireless networks
- Some restricted Fondren resources. It also includes some Rice servers that check LDAP
