Department StatNet policy for Graduate Students:
After completing your degree you will be given three (3) months to clear out your StatNet account. You will then be allowed another three (3) months 'grace' period to finally move everything from your account. After that period, your account will be terminated without notice. If you need to extend your account for any reason, you will be required to have a departmental personnel to sponsor, i.e. a faculty member.
Email forwarding will be permanent. Contact help [at] stat.ubc.ca for more detail if you have any question.
Email forwarding: messages sent to your former Email address can be forwarded to another Email address. If you've set up your own Email forwarding, it will cease to work after your account is archived; you should arrange forwarding with the IT staff before your account is deactivated to ensure continuity of service.
