Some NetIDs to be deactivated Nov. 11

DoIT will deactivate NetID-related service accounts (i.e., My UW, WiscMail, WiscCal and dial access) for non-eligible students, faculty and staff on Tuesday, November 11, 2008. Those who are valid students or who have valid appointments with the University should not see their service affected.

Anyone who believes his or her account is being deactivated in error should use the NetID Deactivation Assistant at A grace period (effective until Tuesday, December 2 at 8:00 a.m.) is available upon request via the NetID Deactivation Assistant. Email forwards set before or during the grace period will be honored until May 15, 2009. Please note forwards cannot be set after the grace period expiration date. DoIT reserves the right to exclude messages identified as highly likely to be bulk mail (spam) from the allowable forwarded mail.

DoIT will send out a pre-notification message on Monday, November 3 to affected users, allowing them to request a grace period prior to deactivation occurring. This digitally signed email message will include a link to the NetID Deactivation Assistant ,or users can access the Help Desk web site for the link, in an effort to avoid the email being perceived as a phishing attempt. If deactivated users visit a WebISO-enabled application after the deactivation has taken place, they will be automatically redirected to the Deactivation Assistant.

Deactivation is done, in part, to create more space and accounts for people who continue to be part of the UW-Madison community.

If you have questions, contact the Help Desk at (608) 264-HELP or see DoIT’s eligibility policy at Policy.
