Faculty and staff whose employment with U-M is terminated, and who have no other affiliation with the university, lose eligibility for U-M computing services. They lose access after a grace period.
- When the faculty or staff affiliation is removed from the person's MCommunity Directory profile, an automated email notice is sent letting them know that they will lose access to some computing services in 30 days.
- Thirty days later, access to the services listed in the email ends.
- The uniqname and directory profile remain active for a little over a year. This allows the former employee to forward their U-M email to another account, log in to Wolverine Access for their W-2 form, and perform other such transitional activities.
Note that faculty and staff who are also alumni are eligible to keep some services because of their alumni status.
Former employees who need continued access to departmental systems must make arrangements with their department to become sponsored. Should they later return to the university—whether as a sponsored person, employee, or student—their uniqname can be reactivated.
