Information for students, employees leaving K-State

Students (including graduates) and faculty/staff who are leaving the university permanently should check out the Preparing to Leave K-State webpage, which includes:

  • How to forward your e-mail and update your e-communications
  • The importance of copying files, e-mail, etc. before those are erased
  • The need to remove K-State’s antivirus and other software obtained via a university site license or volume-purchase agreement
  • Other essential steps to do BEFORE you lose access to K-State resources

When an individual’s K-State affiliation ends, they will be notified and given two weeks to copy files, e-mail, and personal webpages. After that, a $50 fee is assessed for temporary access to personal files. All of that data is destroyed and removed from the central backup systems 180 days after K-State affiliation ends.

Those leaving should continue changing their K-State eID password each spring and fall semester, so they have continued access to their eProfiles and K-State resources for which they are authorized, such as:

  • Everyone can keep their K-State e-mail address (name@k-state.edu) and update e-mail forwarding as needed.
  • Former students can still access their records in the iSIS student information system.
  • Former employees can still access their records in Human Resources’ HRIS Employee Self Service.
