Alumni Accounts: Granting or Restricting Access to Departmental Services

Beginning in spring 2015, graduating students will be granted Alumni Accounts that provide access to certain enterprise services such as My Pitt Email. Some University departments provide additional technology services, and they may want to allow alumni access to these services or restrict these services (for example, because of licensing requirements). The technical information provided in this section is intended to help departmental IT staff modify access to their services as needed.
