Accounts & E-mail

Members of the WPI Community receive several different kinds of accounts upon arrival at WPI, and some of these accounts pertain to e-mail, but not all.

Students cannot create logins until just before the term or semester for which they are registered. For terms E or A, or the fall semester, logins cannot be created until the middle of April. For term C or the spring semester, logins can be created around the middle of December.

Usernames and passwords to these accounts are private information - it is against the AUP to share them with anyone, for any reason. Violations of the AUP may result in the removal of account(s).

Your login will be maintained as long as you are continuously registered or employed by WPI. Due to restrictions on the licensed resources to which you have access via your login, logins must be removed if you are not registered or employed.

Typically, logins of people who depart WPI are removed at the end of each month, although a login might be removed immediately at the request of the Registrar's Office, for students, or the Human Resources Office, for employees.

Logins of October graduates are removed at the end of December. Logins of February graduates are removed at the end of April. Logins of May graduates are removed in September.
