  • Eligible department affiliates, Special Authorization Campus Affiliates, and HRS Persons of Interest (POI) are provided with Alumni/Emeritus/Retiree licenses. Please see Office 365 - What should I expect when I am no longer a Faculty, Staff, or Student? for additional information on employees leaving the university.
  • There may be a time where a user is both an Alumni and Faculty/Staff member. During this period, the user will always receive the licenses that grant them more service access - in this case, they would be able to access all the apps/services under the "Faculty/Staff/Student" column.
