St. Cloud State provides students access to technology services, using their StarID, one year past the term in which they graduated.
After the extension period has expired, accounts are disabled and removed from the system. Alumni need to remove or copy their account files to another location before their technology access and account expire.
Saving your files
You will need to move or copy your files to another location if you wish to keep them for future use. You can burn them to CD, copy them to a flash drive (memory stick) or move to another location. If you need assistance, please contact HuskyTech. Lab consultants are available to assist you in all General Access Labs.
A StarID remains active at St. Cloud State as long as a student is continuously enrolled in courses at St. Cloud State.
The following general information pertains to expiration and removal of accounts for students who have not officially graduated from St. Cloud State.
Accounts will be deactivated 9 months after the term of last enrollment for undergraduate students and 12 months after the term of last enrollment for graduate students.
New e-mail will not be delivered and existing e-mail and private files will be retained but not accessible. If you have special circumstances that would require you to access your account during this time, please visit our Exceptions and Extensions page.
Deactivated accounts at St. Cloud State, and the files and e-mail associated with them, will be deleted from the St. Cloud State system one year after the account has been in the deactivated state.
St. Cloud State University is not responsible for any deleted information due
to removal of a StarID access, files or e-mail. Once an account is deleted,
St. Cloud State cannot retrieve files or e-mail.
Regaining Access to Services
If you are returning to St. Cloud State from a semester or more away, once you are registered for classes, your StarID access to services will return.
