Until further notice, all affiliate account creation has been suspended.
Information Technology Services staff are currently working to redesign and deploy an updated process to create affiliate user accounts that does not require the gathering, storage, or maintenance of sensitive personally identifiable information for the account users. Affiliate account users are not current faculty, staff, or students at the university.
This necessary interruption in service has been driven by the security risk associated with handling sensitive information for non-employees, and to comply with recent updates to the University SSN Use Policy.
Questions about the process may be directed to Case Help Desk at 368-HELP (4357). Until a solution has been implemented, requests for affiliate account creation will be queued in the Help Desk.
