So you’ve just graduated (YAY!). On behalf of all of IT across Penn State-CONGRATULATIONS!!!
If you’re leaving the University for other pursuits, it’s important to know that you will only keep your Access Account for 6 months after graduation. This means you need to do a couple of things before then:
For a smooth transition, you should start forwarding your Penn State email to your new email account no later than 5 months after you graduate. Here are instructions on how to do just that.
Change your contact information to reflect your new email address with all the places/people you receive email from (just like changing your physical address when you move).
If you’ve stored anything on your Penn State Access Account Storage Space (PASS), this is the time to relocate it. You can do this with DVDs, thumb drives, external hard drives, or cloud services such as Dropbox. If you’re unsure of how to do this, the IT Service Desk is a great place to start. When you no longer have your Access Account, you no longer have access to the stuff you’ve stored, so make sure you move it!
