Every 6 months, ITS removes network accounts of alumni who are not longer at the college. You still have access to your student email and Office 365 if you continue to use them (login at least once every 4 months). You will also still have access to your ACSIS account.
As a student at Algonquin College, you pay the IT Fee (What is the IT Fee?
) when you are attending classes to pay for a number of services at the college including your AC network account.
The accounts of students who left the college (who are no longer paying IT Fees) are removed to enable faster, better, and more cost effective service for current students.
How does this affect you?
You will experience the following limitations from not having a network account:
- You normally only need your AC network account while on campus to log into the network, wireless, and so on. There are other services that use your network account, such as Blackboard, but when you are not attending classes typically you do not have access to these services anyway.
- You will no longer be able to use your AC network account information to connect to the college via VPN or through the Secure Portal.
- However, while on campus you can still access the public wireless network - What wireless networks are available on campus?
Remember, if you take a class at the college in the future and pay the IT Fee you will have a network account again.
