CreationAccounts are created for:
- people doing CS research
- graduate students
- CS concentrators
- undergraduates doing research with a CS faculty member, and
- students taking CS courses.
All accounts must have a faculty sponsor, either directly or through registration for a course. Requests for accounts for graduate students are made by a graduate student representative at the start of the academic year. Requests for undergraduate accounts are made by a faculty member or by TAs at the beginning of each semester.
To set up an account, send an email to email@example.com
Since all accounts expire when the owner's association with the department ends, each account will have an expiration date associated with it. A review of all accounts is done at the beginning and end of each semester. Idle accounts, accounts with an expiration date that has arrived, or accounts not associated with a course will be slated for removal.
All accounts on the list will not automatically be removed - the expiration date is just an administrative guide and can be easily extended at faculty request. A list of accounts to be removed is emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (all cs accounts get a copy) and individual mail is sent to each person on the list informing them of the upcoming removal of their account. Between posting the list and removing the accounts, a month or so is given to be sure that everyone has had the opportunity to respond, if necessary.
If you have a problem with the expiration of an account, send an email to email@example.com
