EECS Account Expiration:
There are two ways your account can expire.
1. The password can expire.
  • When this happens you will be unable to access any EECS service except for SSH. This includes GitLab.
  • This happens about every 6 months.
  • To fix this you can log into the SSH servers to update your password. Or visit the VCEA Helpdesk in Sloan 358.
2. The account itself can expire.
  • This will cease all activity on your account and you will need to stop by the EECS Helpdesk in Sloan 358 to reactivate it.
  • This occurs about every year.
  • Note: this does not mean your account is deleted, but if your account isn't reactivated in a few years it will be deleted.
