All existing student accounts will expire on Friday 8th February 2008. At this time, any students who are not registered for the 2008 academic year will no longer be able to access their accounts.

Students who are returning, and re-register before Friday 8th February 2008 will not be affected by this. Students who are returning, and re-register during administrative registration on Saturday 9th will be without access for up to 24 hours. Students who are returning, and re-register later than the 9th will not have access until some time after they register.

Students who are not returning in 2008 are encouraged to ensure that they've cleaned up both their e-mail inbox and their home directories on jackal before this date. They may also wish to set up an e-mail forward to forward e-mail from their @campus account to a new address. Such forwards may work for a month or so after accounts expire, but cannot be configured or changed once expiry happens. Once accounts expire we will not be in a position to help students who've forgotten something they still need.

Postgraduate students who intend to submit in time for the April 2008 graduation, but do not intend registering for 2008, can have their access temporarily extended. Doing so requires permission, in writing, from the Registrar. The onus is on postgraduate students to organise such permission themselves on an individual basis. Letters granting extensions can be taken to the IT Division Helpdesk on the middle floor of Struben building.
