The deadline for this application is on the Friday of the first week of classes (Late Registration) at 4:30 p.m. to the Office of the Registrar. If the application is granted, the in-state tuition rate shall be effective starting in the semester it is approved. If the application is received after the deadline and is granted, the in-state tuition will be effective for the following consecutive semester.
University-approved policies for issuing, limiting or disabling Network Usernames (userids), email accounts, and Internet or computer system use are explained through the SVSU Information Technology Services Policies.
Any student who is no longer enrolled to SVSU will lose their access. This is for security reasons. For more information, please see the Student Technology Access Policy.

Note - upon graduation, an individual’s SVSU O365 account will transition to an email-only account. An email will continue indefinitely as long as the alumnus continues to make the required annual password change indicating the account is actively being used. Notifications are sent prior to password expiration. If the password is not changed, an additional 30-day notice is sent. At the end of that time, if no response has been made, the account will be terminated and the mailbox and all messages will be removed from the system and not recoverable. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) will be enforced on all active alumni and retiree email accounts.
