Applicants have the option on their coversheet form to remove their accounts and all files once all the programs they've applied are finished, or they can remove their accounts right away if they don't have any current open applications.
Applicant accounts including all related files in the Portfolio and reference letters will be automatically purged from the database 6 months (or 3 months if they have checked the 'off market' or 'remove my account...' option on they coversheet form) after all programs they have applied (if any) are finished, and they haven't logged in for 12 months. Applicants can delete their accounts right away by checking the 'Delete my account (include all portfolio files and all references) right now' checkbox on their coversheet form if they have no active applications. They can also contact us directly in case they need to remove their accounts quickly for some legitimate reason.
Applications submitted to each program institution belong to that institution, and they are under the supervision of that institution. Each program institution can download all or any part of the application data submitted to their program openings to their local systems for any purposes they deem appropriate. Those downloaded data are no longer under our control, and they are governed by that program institution's own policies. The application data will no longer be available or complete once the applicant accounts have been purged. The system keeps snapshots made by the program institutions online for 3 years. A historical copy of application listing (name, contact & degree info, application dates) and EEO data are available for 6 years before being automatically removed.
