School of Education computer account decommissioning

Active Directory account decommissioning process

MERIT will review all of the computer log ins/Active Directory accounts within the School of Education once per semester, approximately in the middle of the semester, to confirm continued eligibility of the accounts.  Eligibility is defined by one or more of the following:

  • Current employment within the SoE as faculty or staff
  • Student employment within a department in the SoE
  • Graduate student of the SoE currently enrolled in classes
  • Other accounts as requested/coordinated with a SoE department
To verify eligibility, a MERIT staff member will provide each department with a list of all current logins associated with that department.  For accounts that are indicated to be currently eligible, no action will be taken.  For accounts that are indicated to be no longer eligible, those accounts will be disabled.  If there is any data in a personal network drive (P: drive) for a deactivated account, then upon departmental request MERIT will to make that information available to the department to review.  MERIT requests that any data that is no longer needed be deleted.  Any data left in a P: drive that the department does not request access to will be deleted.  Disabled accounts will continue to exist (but be unusable) until the next decommissioning exercise, at which time they will be deleted.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to the MERIT helpdesk at
