Can I still use my student Purdue accounts after leaving Purdue?


Information about access to various services after leaving Purdue.


Purdue Electronic Directory

The information from the directory is removed in two batches, during spring break and October break, approximately two breaks after you graduate.  For example, if you graduate in May, your accounts will likely be removed during the next spring break.

PAL (wireless network)

This service is inaccessible once you are no longer registered for classes in the current semester.


This works the same way as the directory.  This is done so you have a chance to forward all your email to another account before it is deleted.


Although this article gives a typical scenario, once you are no longer in a current status, your account may be removed at any time.  For additional questions, please call the Purdue IT Service Desk at (765) 494-4000.
