Currently we cannot offer alumni access to any databases we license.  Library access ends within 21 days after a student's last class ends, whether due to graduating, finishing course work, taking a break between terms, dropping out, or another reason.
If you are an alumni looking for access to article and e-book databases like Academic Search Complete and Business Source Complete after graduation, try contacting your local public library.  Some states and/or public libraries offer citizens access to online research databases like ours.  Local public universities or colleges may also be able to offer access to their onsite physical and/or digital collections to local citizens.  Library staff put together a guide that serves as an index of known state library resources here:
To learn about benefits and services available to Alumni please check out the alumni engagement section   of KU campus and there you'll find lots of helpful information on what's available.
