Net IDs are assigned to every member of the campus community. In addition, each individual is assigned a role within the university (student, employee, faculty, etc.) which is associated with the Net ID. This provides the access to specific web applications and university privileges. Members of the campus community retain their Net IDs, even after leaving the university, but their roles will change and with those roles the applications they can access. At the time of retirement, the role changes to retiree.
