Net-ID Account Suspensions

This news item expired May 6, 2010. It may contain out-of-date information.
Every semester, IT Services reviews accounts of individuals who are no longer at Iowa State University, and Administrative Accounts to determine if they are still necessary. We want to ensure that we don't mistakenly suspend an account, so we send an email to the owner of the account requesting that they take action if the account is still necessary.

To be eligible for an account, you must fulfill one of these requirements:
-- Enrolled in class since fall 2009 or later
-- Have been paid since July 2009 or later (not X, XH, or C payclass)
-- Be an emeritus faculty member
-- Sponsored by full-time Iowa State employee in the last 6 months

Is my account going to expire?
You can check if your account is going to expire by going to and entering your Net-ID.

What happens if my account is suspended?
When an account is suspended, it will no longer be able to:
-- Log in to Iowa State services such as email, CyMail, WebMail, and WebCT.
-- Use authenticated services, such as public computer labs.
-- Save new files in online file space.
-- Retain a personal webpage at

What will I be able to do after my account is suspended?
If your account is suspended, mail can still be forwarded and you can access your file space until early next semester.
