    1. click Banner General Self-Service then go to Personal Information.
    2. Update the Personal Email Address and make sure a non-Mines e-mail address has been added via the Edit or Add New menu (if it isn’t already in place). This will be used in the event you forget your Mines Alumni Email password.
    3. Make sure you have a mobile phone number in your Banner profile in case we need to contact you outside of e-mail for any identity verification. 
  2. When your banner record is inactivated due to graduation the license will automatically be switched to an Alumni license.
    1. Your record will be inactivated roughly a month after graduation. 
    2. Once your record has been inactivated, most access will be terminated so be sure to backup your data soon after graduation. When backing up your data be sure to backup anything in Canvas, OneDrive, Google Drive/Docs, your Z drive and any other data that may exist.  Once the account is inactivated you will no longer have access to this data and it will be removed from our systems.
