Gmail Accounts at Covenant College

When will my account be deleted after I graduate/do not return?

If you have recently graduated, your Banner/Gmail account will stay active through August 15 following commencement.

If you are an undergraduate student who is not returning, your Banner/email account will remain active until after the start of the next term. Accounts will be disabled on February 15 for fall students who do not return in the spring; and September 15 for spring students who do not return in the fall.

If you are a graduate student who is not returning, your Banner/email account will remain active until the start of the next term. This is normally about 1 year after the beginning of your last enrollment term.

For all students - you will begin receiving email notifications to your Covenant College email address 30 days before your account is scheduled to be disabled.

Important: If you have any Google documents that you would like to keep, please be sure to download them to a personal device before your Covenant account is disabled.
