If you’re graduating, leaving Madison for the summer, or leaving for good, don’t miss your chance to save money now and some hassle in the future.
If you’re graduating, your UW NetID will only live for another six months or so. While you still can, take care of all things wisc.edu:
- Get a new email service – Decide where to get your post-UW email. You have lots of choices, including Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Windows Live Hotmail. The UW Alumni Association provides a free email service to UW graduates.
- Forward your email – Forward your WiscMail email to another account.
- Close out your UW-Madison Google Apps account – Before your NetID is deactivated, set up a personal Google account and share your UW Google Apps content with it. That way, you’ll still have access to your stuff once you leave the University.
- Get your transcript – Before you graduate, get your transcript from the Registrar’s Office. If you wait until after your NetID is deactivated, you’ll have to remember your old campus identification number and PIN. And if you don’t remember that, it gets complicated. So order your transcript now.
- Buy software – Buy popular software at huge discounts – but only while you’re enrolled – from WISC.
If you’re coming back next fall, stop at the DoIT Tech Store now for the computing gear and accessories you’ll need to get through the long, hot summer – at great prices!
