Access to Email and File Storage after Leaving or Retiring

ISU provides many services such as email, file storage, and Microsoft Office applications. Many have questions as to how long they will be able to access these services after they retire or leave the University.

  • Retirees
    • Email, calendaring, and OneDrive are retained indefinitely.
    • CAST network drive resources (letter drives like “H”) are archived and retained indefinitely
    • The desktop versions of Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook) will no longer be available for download after retirement. The online “lite” versions of Outlook, Excel, Word, and PowerPoint however will still be accessible.
  • Leaving Employees and Students
    • All access is revoked after 12 months. This includes email, Office, and all other services.
