During the 2020 Spring semester student folders on the Udrive will be moved to an archived location for those individuals no longer enrolled at the University of North Dakota. The initial archive will be completed on March 17. The process will be conducted twice a year on October 1 and February 1. These files will be retained in an archived location for two years and can be retrieved upon request by submitting a support ticket to the University Information Technology department.
