Department Sponsored Accounts

Who is eligible

A specified individual representing the department is eligible for a Department Sponsored Account. Departmental sponsored accounts are NOT for group access to email, etc. The userID and password should never be shared for use by a group. For free group access to email, file storage and calendar, Group Access is the appropriate solution. The sponsor must be a full-time permanent faculty or staff member.

Note: Departmental accounts do not have login access to cluster computers or computers on the Windows domain.

How to request it

Business Administrators, HREM Administrators, or Departmental Administrators can request or renew accounts by completing the Department Sponsored Accounts Request/Renewal Form.

Account Expiration and Termination

The expiration date is set when the account is created. Two renewal notices are sent to the sponsor of the account and to the account’s email address. The first is sent out two weeks before the expiration date, the second one week before. If there is no response to the renewal request, the account is allowed to expire.
