Course assignments in Moodle, that Photoshop masterpiece stored in Dropbox, or collaborative documents on Google Docs. Once your Carleton account expires, you will lose access to these files which will eventually be deleted from our systems.
The links below provide more information on accessing and transferring these types of files.

Mailing lists and organization resources that have no on-campus owners will be scheduled for deletion, so please pass them along to someone who isn't graduating.
If you have been an active member of a student group or organization on campus, it is possible that you are the designated owner or administrator of either the corresponding mailing list or other network resources. Before you leave Carleton, you should be sure to transfer such ownership to your lucky successor.
Mailing lists that have no on-campus owners will be scheduled for deletion, so please pass them along to someone who is not graduating.
Student organizations whose leaders have all graduated are considered inactive by the CSA, so if the organization is to confinue, you will need to hand it off to the next generation. You will need to designate next year's org leader and transfer network folder and web resources to help.
Instructions on both can be found at the links below.
All mailing lists you own must be transferred to someone who isn't graduating. Any lists that end up without a valid owner will eventually be closed..
If you lead a student organization, you must transfer ownership of online resources to someone who isn't graduating.
Any (non-personal) Dropbox files or folders for which you are the owner must be transferred to a new owner.
Any (non-personal) Google Drive files for which you are the owner must be transferred to a new owner.
ITS provides several computing services to Carleton alumni, to help ease the transition into the post-Carleton world and to provide ways of keeping in touch with other alumni and the Carleton community. You will continue to have access to web resources like the Hub and the Alumni Directory after graduation. For services like these, you will continue to sign in using your current username and password.
Also, although your student email account is deactivated, you can set up a Carleton Alumni forwarding address so that you always have a Carleton address that people can email you through.
