How long does my account last?

Engineering resources  for COE majors will last as long as the ONID account does, which is currently 1 year post graduation. Engineering resources for non-COE majors will be removed one term after your engineering class ends.
This includes access to CoE computer labs, Engineering Citrix desktops, Linux hosts, and storage on depot, stak, or attic.

More information on account termination can be found here.
