Leaving EKU? There are a number of tasks you will need to complete before leaving the University, such as uninstalling software, moving cloud-stored files and more.
Effective Wednesday, October 1, 2018, individuals who leave the University will lose access to the following IT Services:
NOTE: Students must have taken a credit course.
|Retain* access to:||Lose access to:|
-Student records in EKU Direct
*As long as their EKU ID is active.
If you graduated after EKU started using Office 365, you will continue to have access to email, calendar, contacts, and tasks through your mymail.eku.edu account after you leave the University.
However, to comply with Microsoft/Google licensing requirements, EKU must remove access to other 365 and G Suite services (e.g., Office 365, Google Apps, Google Drive). You should back up any data you want to keep.
If you downloaded and installed Office 365, you will receive a prompt after deactivation that asks for you to Activate Office. You will either need to purchase an Office 365 account with Microsoft directly or purchase a commercially available version of Office. Office software will prompt with a warning that a license needs to be purchased from Microsoft to continue.
Data should be downloaded or otherwise backed-up prior to deactivation - by the day you graduate is best.
You can download your data from OneDrive using OneDrive for Business Sync. To download items, you will use Sync to copy or move items to your local machine or flash drive using Windows Explorer.
A much slower option is to open and download each item in your OneDrive folder.
There is no migration path from the EKU Office 365 OneDrive to a personal Microsoft OneDrive account without saving the data to a computer first.
Instructions to download files from your Google Drive.
If you want a copy of your data in Google Apps, you can use Google Takeout to export data from your various apps within your EKU Google Apps account.
Supported apps include Google Drive.
Please note this isn't instantaneous and it may take a long time to create.
Once you have your archive, it is up to you on how to import your data to other accounts.
If you have any questions regarding your student status with the university, please contact the Registrar's office, Graduate School Office, or another office that identified you as a student.
