Emeritus privileges

Faculty are granted Emeritus status by the Board of Regents via formal action under Policy 702.7.

  • Faculty with Emeritus status have the privilege to access/use all MSU IT software and services in perpetuity. 
  • UIT will activate these services upon receiving notification of approval from OCHE/MUS Board of Regents (BoR).

Prior to official approval, faculty waiting for emeritus status will only be able to access their email if they had requested to retain it prior to their retirement (see To retain MSU email account, above).
