How long are UMConnect accounts active?
UMConnect accounts are offered to all enrolled university students.
How do I maintain my UMConnect account?
If you are away from campus on a UM-associated program or military leave, you may meet the requirements for a Student Affiliate which would allow you to maintain access to your UMConnect account. Apply for Student Affiliate status prior to the 15th class day of the semester to retain services. After the third week of Fall or Spring semester, these requests cannot be accommodated. International students should contact Barb Seekins and previously registered students should contact Bonnie Holzworth. Please provide detailed information on how you will be associated with the University while you are not a registered student.
