For continuing students: Between the semesters your account remains active and you will have access to library materials from off-campus.  However, if you do not register for classes for the following semester, your account will expire at the start of that semester.  The only exception is for the summer semester, when graduate students do not have to be registered for summer classes to maintain access over the summer. 

For graduating students: Upon graduation, all student accounts expire and student status changes to alumni status.  As alumni you do not have access to the Libraries' databases or e-books from off-campus.

For new students: New students will not have active accounts until the semester for which they are registered begins.
