Student status and system access

Students are considered active during semesters in which they are actively enrolled in courses. Appropriate access is provided when a student is active, which is two (2) weeks prior to the start of the semester in which they are actively enrolled in courses.

Access to most Michigan Tech-related systems and services will be cut off two (2) weeks after a student is no longer considered an active student.  For regular semesters, this is two (2) weeks after the last day of finals. Email, Banweb, and Canvas access will persist until the next semester.

While a student is not active, access is disabled for items such as:

  • Computer login
  • Card and door access
  • Software, including Microsoft Office 365,, and software licenses
  • VPN
  • Multidrive or home drive files and folders
  • Printing
  • Access to the Library's electronic resources
  • Experience Tech

Access will continue for:

  • Banweb
  • Michigan Tech campus wireless
  • Email

    In the case of suspension/dismissal, the student will retain email access for the length of time needed to file an appeal, after which time email access is removed.

Upon graduation, transfer to another institution, or voluntary withdrawal, the student is classified as alumni and retains Banweb, email, and WiFi access indefinitely.
