Graduating Seniors: Technology Transition after College

As you prepare for the many changes that will take place after graduation, we want to remind you of the technology needs you should plan for during your transition from Amherst College. You will want to address the following as needed:
access to Amherst College email, College-licensed software, files stored on network shares, ACData, and student printing. Access to these technology services will cease on a phased schedule, see details below. 

This page details each item and the specific date each is affected, with the earliest one being access to network storage, printing, and software at commencement.

Please contact us, if you have any questions.

Important Dates to Remember! 


At Commencement
Amherst VPN, Network Storage, Printing, Dropbox, and Software

Six Months After Graduation – End of November 2016
Student IT Account Access – Amherst College Email, Google Apps, CMS/Websites

One Year After Graduation – May 2017
Access to ACData

  • Student role in ACData ends. You will want to obtain digital or printed copies of your unofficial transcript, grades, and tax forms before May 2017.
  • Alternatives to set up prior to that date:
    • Transcripts: print out an unofficial transcript before access to ACData ends. After access ends, you may order an official transcript from the Registrar’s Office.
    • Tax forms: will be available prior to that date for tax purposes so you can download them from ACData.
