Whether you can continue to use your uniqname, MCommunity Directory profile, and U-M computing services after leaving U-M depends on whether you retain any affiliation to the university.

Download or transition digital data from you account. If you will lose access to some or all U-M computing services, see Managing Your Digital Files and Information When You Leave U-M for information to help you transition files, messages, and other digital data that you want to keep.

Departmental and administrative access. Staff in your department will remove your access to departmentally provided services that you are no longer eligible for. They can also request removal of any access you have to any enterprise administrative systems using the Online Access Request System (OARS).

If you have multiple affiliations with the university, you retain access as long as one affiliation remains. For example, a terminated staff member who is also an alumna retains use of some services because of her alumni affiliation. A sponsored person who is hired by the university retains access after his sponsorship expires because of his employee affiliation. A staff member who retires can continue to use some services because of her retiree affiliation.

U-M policy applies. Responsible Use of Information Resources (SPG 601.07) applies to all members of the university community and users of its information resources. This includes alumni and retirees who continue to have and use a U-M account.
