One year after you graduate, or your last attendance, your account will be inactivated and you will no longer have access to your QuistaMail or Google Apps documents. Should you return to the College, your account will be reactivated, but any email you previously had will no longer be available.

If you want to close your account, you should download any data you wish to keep, then submit a request to close your account at

Keep in mind that if you close your account, the College may no longer be able to send you official notices regarding financial aid, registration, etc.
