The following message has been sent by email to all CCIS major accounts that are due to expire.
Subject: ACTION REQUIRED: CCIS account will expire 2/25/13
Hi. You’re getting this mail because you have a CCIS major’s account, and according to the data we get from the Registrar, you are no longer a CCIS major. (This could mean you’ve transferred out of the program, but usually it means you got your degree.)
As per the university’s policies, if you are no longer attending the University we will need to expire (delete) your account at the College. When your account is expired, all of the data associated with your account (files, email, etc) will be deleted so you will want to transfer anything you’d like to keep to another system. You can do this by using an SFTP client and connecting to one of our machines like login.ccs.neu.edu using your CCIS credentials.
If you would like to retain an Northeastern University email address, the Northeastern Alumni Office offers an email forwarding service for graduates. For more information, please see their web page here:
If you believe this message is reaching you in error and you are still affiliated with Northeastern in a way that entitles you to an account (for example, you are still taking classes here), please use this form:
*BY February 25th* (i.e., within the next month) to let us know how to handle your account. You can also use the form to let us know it’s fine for us to go ahead and expire your account right away, or to explain any special circumstances.
IF YOU DON’T CONTACT US THROUGH THAT FORM BY February 25th, YOUR CCIS ACCOUNT WILL BE EXPIRED on that date (or within a few days thereafter).
If you have any trouble filling out that form, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you do have any trouble, please contact us as early as possible, so that we can solve your problem and enable you to fill out the form by February 25th.
Thank you for your consideration.
