When to Take Action
If any one of the following situations listed below exist please contact the ISU Helpdesk to have them correct the access. Sending an Email to the ISU Helpdesk, noting changes, is the preferred method of contact. If the situation is considered critical please contact the ISU Helpdesk by phone at 282-HELP.
- If the account holder has left the employment of the university.
- If the account holder has transferred to another department within the university.
- If the account holder's name has changed.
- If the account is about to expire but needs to be extended.
- If an account has not been accessed for six months or more.
in this situation the account should probably be disabled as the account holder probably has no current requirement for an HP1 computer account. A new account could be created in the future as needs change by simply contacting the ISU Helpdesk.
Thank you very much for your assistance.
