Account Deactivation Information

UNH Faculty and Staff

It is important that all departmental supervisors and managers are aware that the Human Resources termination process of a status employee’s position is directly related to UNH IT managed computer accounts being disabled.  Please note that it is the responsibility of supervisors and managers to understand and follow account deactivation policies for computer accounts managed by departments other than UNH IT.

The UNH IT computer account deactivation process begins at the departmental level with the business process a supervisor is required to follow to terminate an employee. As the Banner Human Resource system is updated with a termination date for the employee, the UNH IT Identity Management System is also updated. For UNH Staff, all computer accounts associated with the individual leaving the University are disabled on the termination date. For UNH Faculty, all computer accounts associated with the individual leaving the University are disabled 90 days after the termination date.  For UNH Adjunct Faculty, all computer accounts are disabled 120 days after the end of their most recent job. This includes:

This process has mitigated the risks related to accessing of data by a former employee’s computer account. These risks include identity thefts, spoofing of E-mail addresses, accessing confidential data and manipulation of data. 

Please complete the IT Account Modification form if you have an employee who is leaving prior to their end date or if their access needs to be revoked immediately.  An Account Administrator will then work with you to remove or update the employee's access.

Planning ahead will assure a smooth transition in computing when your department experiences a vacancy. Here are some things you can do:

As we continue to improve our processes, it is important to work in partnership with the UNH community to assure business continuity and a computing environment that is secure and accessible only to those who have access.
