Graduating seniors all campus accounts will be terminated on July 1. Termination includes all files (e.g., papers, web pages, presentations, email). Exceptions to this July 1 deadline will be made for graduates who are working on-campus during the summer following graduation or for students participating in the 9th semester program. Following the semester you will be moved to Alumni status. If you need an extension beyond July 1, contact IT at no later than July 1 with your request.

  • Graduates may request an alumni myGettysburg account. myGettysburg Alumni is a searchable alumni directory and online profile update.  Access to myGettysburg Alumni for recent graduates will be available in early July of the summer after graduation.
  • H Drive - copy H drive contents to cd, save to your computer using SSH (Windows) or Fugi (Mac), or email them to your Gettysburg email or another email account.
  • Email - use these instructions (DOCX) to transfer your Gettysburg email to your computer.

CNAV groups - Review any CNAV groups for which you are an owner and either

  • Mark the group for deletion
  • Designate a new owner of the group and then remove yourself as owner. 
  • If this is not done, you and/or your organization run the risk of having the group alias terminated.
  • Please also take yourself out of any groups that allow you to self-delete, by clicking on the unsubscribe link in your My Groups listing under the My Place menu.

Hardware - Any IT hardware that you may have (mini-switches, satellite TV boxes, Cable modems, remote controls, etc.) must be returned to IT no later than your last day on campus. Make arrangements with IT by calling x6918. You will be charged for any damaged or missing hardware.
