In accordance with Clemson University’s Username and Password Policy, one year after graduation, your Clemson Username will be deactivated. This means all your access to Clemson student resources will no longer be available.

We suggest you prepare with the following steps before you graduate:

  1. Backup all of your personal data on your laptop and bring it by the CCIT Customer Support Center in the Cooper Library for a final hardware check and re-image.
  2. Save a copy of your unofficial transcript. After your Username is deactivated, you will no longer be able to access your unofficial transcript. Instead, you will have to request an official copy for a fee, as directed by the Registrar’s transcripts page.
  3. Save a copy of your tax records. After your Username is deactivated, you will no longer be able to access iRoar for your billing information. If your account is deactivated and you need to get these records, contact CCIT at (864)656-3494.


All Clemson University students have access to Microsoft Office as part of Clemson University’s site licensing agreement. Our agreement also allows us to reinstall Microsoft Windows on your laptop when the need arises. Once you graduate, you will no longer qualify to use Clemson’s site-licensed software.  Alumni are eligible for a discounted Microsoft Office 365 Personal license, available at


Google Workspace for Education (  One year after you graduate from Clemson, your Clemson gmail will no longer be available. So it is recommended that you create a new gmail account and share that address with your contacts. Please note that forwarding of will cease soon after your username is deactivated, so make sure to let all your contacts know they should send email to your new gmail address.

There is a tool available to transfer the content of your Clemson gmail to a new gmail account.  Click here for an article on using Google Transfer to transfer data from your gmail to a public gmail account. 

Note: you can also use Google Transfer to transfer data from your Clemson Google Drive to your new Google Drive but be cautious if you have a lot of data. Free public Google accounts have limited data (often 15 GB) and your Clemson Google Drive may have a lot more data than that. If that is the case, you can also use Google Takeout to download your Clemson Google Drive to .zip files that you can see on your computer.
