Title: Graduate and Evening Studies Account Policy

Applicable: Furman University (Graduate and Evening Studies Students)

Contacts: IT Service Center ext. 3277

Background: As the Graduate and Evening Studies programs increase their use of Furman computer labs and authenticated network applications, it has become necessary to state which types of Furman accounts are available for those students.

Policy: Furman University Graduate and Evening Studies students will be issued accounts on the Furman network.


  1. Furman University Graduate and Evening Studies students will be issued accounts on the Furman network.
  2. All students enrolled in degree seeking programs are eligible for a "NetID" account as described in the Network Account Policy (NetID.)
  3. Graduate and Evening Studies students are not issued a Furman email account unless they are in a degree seeking program. If a student who is not enrolled in a degree-seeking program is enrolled in an undergraduate day class that requires the use of a Furman issued email account, an account may be issued if the professor makes a request on behalf of the student.
  4. Enrolled Graduate and Evening Studies accounts will be generated four business days before the start of the term.
  5. If the student is not enrolled five days before the start of the term, the department must place a request with the IT Service Center to create an account as soon as the student is enrolled. Account requests may take up to 48 hours to process.
  6. All account information may be obtained at the IT Service Center no earlier than three business days before the start of the term.
  7. Student accounts will be deleted at the end of the term unless the student is enrolled in the following term by the end of the add/drop period.
  8. As with any personal account, users must not share their username or password with anyone. All users are responsible for all material originating from an account.
  9. Any vulgar, inappropriate or harassing material originating from an account could result in the termination of the account, disciplinary action and/or possible criminal charges. For more information on the university’s harassment policy please refer to University policy 094.1 Harassment.
  10. The Chief Information Officer must approve all special requests.
