Life After Middlebury

This document is designed to help you navigate the changes to your account as you transition from Middlebury. Before you leave, you should prepare for this transition by backing up any files or emails you need for your personal records. In the case of faculty and staff, you should also make sure any shared files are saved somewhere others in your department can access.  

After you leave Middlebury, you will no longer be able to access certain Middlebury College resources. These are some recommendations to help you navigate this transition.

Account Timelines

Everyone: On your last day of employment or enrollment at Middlebury, you may no longer have access to services. This includes services such as:

  • Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Department shared drives and cloud storage
  • Microsoft Office desktop apps
  • Panopto
  • Middcreate websites
  • Other services you access using your Middlebury account

Plan for this transition by moving your files to a personal account prior to your departure.

Students: You will retain access to your email account for one calendar year. After a year has elapsed (and if you have not returned to Middlebury) your account will be deactivated, and you will not have any access.

Faculty: You will retain access to your email account for three months. After those three months have elapsed (and if you have not returned to Middlebury) your account will be deactivated, and you will not have any access.

Staff: You will retain access to your email account for one month. After that month has elapsed (and if you have not returned to Middlebury) your account will be deactivated, and you will not have any access.

Middlebury Email Account 

Think about your Middlebury email while you still have access to it.  

  • Do you need any of these emails for your records? Forward these emails to a personal account. 

  • Do you have any subscriptions, bills, student loan communications, or other critical emails being sent to your Middlebury email? Update your contact information with your service providers. 

  • If you have large amounts of mail to move from your Middlebury account: 

    • Mac users can connect macOS Mail (not Outlook) on your computer to both your @Midd and a personal email account, then drag mail from @midd to your personal account. Refer to these instructions for details. 

    • If you need to export your emails to your personal email, you can export your messages to an Outlook Data File (.pst) using Outlook 365 on a Windows computer (not Webmail).  Refer to these instructions for details. 

    • Some email programs can import .pst files. Export your mailbox as a .pst file before August 22, 2022. You can learn how here

    • You may need to purchase your own copy of Office 365 in order to use the exported file, depending on which email program you plan to use. There are also free PST viewers such as [1] and [2] that let you view old email content. 

  • Please let us know your preferred email going forward! Update your contact information so you can receive communications about events, news and updates from Middlebury, and networking opportunities.

Other Services 

  • If you have work in Adobe's cloud storage, you may access Adobe's Asset Migration Tool at graduation.adobe.com.  

 

If you have additional questions about Middlebury College’s Account Lifecycle Policy or why you will no longer have access, you can read more about the policy here.
