Guest Account Renewal

Guest Accounts have a maximum lifespan of one-year, which can be renewed. Before the expiration date arrives, the responsible party of the account will receive an ‘Account Expiration’ email from Information Systems. If the account is still in use and needs to be extended, you can simply reply to the email received, letting us know that you would like to keep it active. If the account is no longer is use, please respond to the email letting us know that it can be deleted from our system. The email specifics are below:
