Alumni

Your student ID card is deactivated after graduation and is no longer valid for library privileges (even if you remain on campus during the summer). Off-campus access to online resources is also deactivated. Your SUNet ID is valid for 120 days after graduation to give you time to move files, email, etc. If you would like to use the library as an alumni, read about our visitor policy or sign up for the fee-based card.

For any questions or concerns, please contact Privileges.
