Tech Tip of the Week: Graduation!

Hello 2021 iSchool Graduates! Congratulations in advance! We know you will do amazing things with what you’ve learned at the iSchool! This Tech Tip is just for you! 

Do you know what happens to your University email once you graduate? 

Your student status will be removed one year after you leave the University. You can continue to use all of your services until your student status is removed. This means that before it is removed, you will want to make sure to set up email forwarding, back up important files, documents, and projects outside of Office 365 and Box, and keep your NetID current by maintaining an updated password when prompted. Once your student status is removed, you will lose access to the following: 
      • University Exchange (Outlook) Mailbox
      • Microsoft Office 365
      • Online courses (Moodle/
      • U of I Box
      • Linkedin Learning

Do you know how to access transcripts of the official and unofficial variety?

If you’re a current student/are graduating this spring:
      • Order an official PDF or paper transcript by accessing the Registration and Records tab in the Student Self-Service.
Don’t have an active NetID?
Both of these options are for electronic transcripts. If you need a paper one, consult the Registrar Transcript page again for more detailed information.
Being able to easily access your transcripts is a great incentive to keep your NetID and password updated regularly!
While we at the Help Desk can point you in the general right direction, any specific transcript questions should go to the Transcript/Records office (217) 333-9778.
