Information Technologies Transition Info

Here are some of the cleanup items you may want to complete, as well as information about how long you will retain access to which services.

How long will I be able to sign into my account?

While your email account will remain active as long as you continue to check it (at least once every six months), access to Malone Xpress and other on-campus resources (print balance, signing in to lab computers with your student account, H: drive storage) will cease 4-6 months after the end of your last semester. Before this happens, there are a few things you may want to do:

  • Download an “unofficial transcript” from Xpress. You can download an “unofficial” transcript from Malone Xpress after your final grades have been posted. Official transcripts can always be requested at any time from the Office of the Registrar.
  • Retrieve contents of your H: drive using remote access. Instructions for accessing your H: drive remotely are located in FAQ140.

More information on your alumni email account

  • How long will my @malone.edu email address stay active? As long as it is being actively checked (at least once every six months), your malone.edu email account will remain active. If your account becomes inactive and you would like to reactivate it or if you need assistance with accessing your email account, you can contact the IT Help Desk at 330.471.8428.
  • If you would like to forward your malone.edu email to another address, you can follow the procedure listed here. Remember that even if you choose to forward your email, you will still lose access to the account if you do not log in at least once every six months.

Purchase software & hardware using your student discount!

University students are eligible for significant discounts on software. While you are still a student, you may want to take advantage of these discounts. Links and additional information for software and hardware discounts are located in FAQ96.


Library Resources

As an alumnus, you retain access to many of the library resources you had when you were a student. Stop in anytime just to say “Hi,” see what’s new, or check out new displays. The role of the library is changing everyday.

Remember, you always have access to the LibGuides, or Library Guides, accessible from the library homepage. They include information on a variety of subjects, as well as on library resources, including patron-specific topics such as new items being added to the library collection.

The library staff will always be there, happy to assist you. Feel free to contact us by phone at 330.471.8317, or e-mail us at reference@malone.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
