Net-ID Account Suspensions

This news item expired September 30, 2010. It may contain out-of-date information.
Every semester, ITS 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:
-- Have been enrolled in class during 2010
-- Have been paid in 2010 and not X, XH, or C payclass
-- Be an emeritus faculty member
-- Be 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 here and entering your Net-ID. This page will also give instructions for how to correct any faulty data.

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.
