Tech Tips: What To Expect After Graduation

Graduating this semester? Congratulations for completing your degree from one of the top nursing programs in the country. Below are common questions we hear from graduating students and steps we recommend that you take now so that you are prepared for post-graduation:

  • How long will I have access to Duke Email?

Duke graduates can use their NetIDs for one year after graduation. After that year, the account will expire and all associated accounts, including e-mail addresses, mailboxes, e-mail forwarding and personal file storage space will be deleted.  If you are a former Duke employee, your DHE/NETID account will expire after graduation.

  • Will I still be able to access DUSON share drive and clubs wireless, after graduation?

No. Your DHE account, used for DUSON share drive access and clubs wireless, will be inaccessible after graduation.

If you are graduating at the end of this semester:

  • Former Duke Employee: To continue your email access for 1 year, please contact the IT Service Desk so we can sponsor your account. It is recommended to submit the request 3-5 business days before your graduation.

  • Office 365 applications: Students are entitled to a free, perpetual graduation license of Microsoft Office, which will allow the installation of Office on one Mac or PC. We recommend that students only access the graduation copy during their final semester since only one download and installation of one version is permitted.

  • Adobe Creative Cloud: Once your NetID is de-provisioned, you will no longer have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud suite.

  • OneDrive: After graduation, students will have access to their OneDrive for Business files and Office 365 email account for one year.

  • Duke Box: Download any data you wish to keep to a local storage device or set up a Box personal account then transfer ownership from your Duke Box account to your personal Box account. 

  • Duke@work: Log into Duke@work and obtain any copies of information you need.

  • Alumni Email Account: An alumni email account can be created through Duke OneLink; click here.
