Graduating Students

For students graduating in May, your network account will be deactivated mid September; December graduate accounts are deactivated mid May. 

All Emory services that required a logon using your netID and password will no longer be available after that date. This includes access to EmoryUnplugged, kiosk & lab computers, and your Emory email account.

After the account deactivation date, access to your OPUS account will remain available so you will still be able request transcripts. Any questions regarding OPUS after your network account is deactivated will need to be sent to

Computer Services:

Access to Student Technology Support is free while you are an Emory student, but services like STS usually cost quite a bit (as much as $100 per hour and maybe more). There are a number of things you can do to keep your computer running at its best.

  • Keep your Antivirus software subscription up-to-date and run scans regularly. Companies like MalwareBytes, Bitdefender, and Adaware offer free versions of malware removal software that you can also use. These can be used in conjunction with your standard AV software - AVG, Avast, etc.
  • Keep all software up-to-date. This includes the operating system updates, web browser updates (including all plug-ins), and any software used to view documents/files downloaded from the internet.
  • If using Windows, run Disk Cleanup on your machine once a month to keep to running optimally. 
  • If using Mac, run First Aid on your machine after a forced shutdown to repair any potential problems.

    Check out our Self Service page for more information on things you can do.

Alumni Services - Email:  

After the network account deactivation date, you will no longer have access to your email address. You can, however, create an email account, powered by Google, when you sign into the Emory Online Community.  For more information on how to access your alumni email address, please visit   

Manage your Digital Footprint:

Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others all allow the general public to see your profile. It is up to you to manage the privacy settings for every profile so people see exactly what you want them to see. Many businesses will try to find these profiles for applicants and you need to make sure they will be pleased with what they see.

Sites like Linked-in allow you to create a social network that is geared towards your professional life and can be a great way to have a forward-facing and professional online profile for others to see.

Sponsored Accounts:

If you are maintaining an affiliation with an official Emory group or program, you may be eligible for a Sponsored Account. You will need a faculty/staff sponsor to request this limited account to be created for you. Your sponsor will be able to make this request by following the directions.
