Account Creation and Deletion for Students, Employees, Alumni and Retirees 
Millikin University > Information Technology > Technology Policies > Account Creation and Deletion

Purpose: This policy defines the creation and deletion process of technology accounts for students, employees, and alumni.

Policy:  A technology account is created for students who have been admitted, registered, and/or are alumni (12 or more successfully completed credits) of Millikin within two business days after their information has been entered into the Banner system.

A technology account is created for an employee within two business days after their base employment record has been entered into the Banner administrative system by HR personnel and activated based on start date.

Home Directories - All students and employees are provided 250 Meg of space on a server for their home directories. Any student who has exceeded the allocated amount of space is contacted via email to remove non-academic related files. Using more than the allotted space can cause students to lose the network "permissions" to see their home directory. Students may be warned that music and video are not acceptable files and must be removed immediately.

Procedure: Students and employees receive accounts according to their status in the Banner administrative system.  Accounts and the ability to access information in the myMILLIKIN portal, which provides single sign-on to all Millikin applications, are generated when information is entered into the system originally or when a status indicator changes from one condition to another.  Everyone receives the Home “Tab” in myMILLIKIN and receive accounts and additional information in myMILLIKIN according to their status.

Applies to: All students, alumni, and employees of Millikin University.

Student home directories are deleted the semester after the student is no longer enrolled at the university.

Employees – Employee accounts for MU Online are never deleted so that past employees may still access their payroll and employment records.  Employee Home Directories are deleted four weeks after the official termination of employment date.

Retirees, emeritus faculty and employees who are also alumni will retain their email accounts for life.
