Modified on Fri, 03 May 2024 at 11:27 AM



As a best practice, we recommend archiving, saving, and backing up your content as soon as your course has ended.

In accordance with the Course Lifecycle Policy, courses are disabled in myLesley after a certain time period. Undergraduate and Masters' level courses are disabled 2 years from the end date of the course. Doctoral level courses are disabled 5 years from the end date of the course. 

Additionally, students lose access to myLesley 60 days after graduation.
