Reminder on changes to Sponsored Guest Account Requests

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

The Sponsored Guest Account Request process changed July 31.

Sponsored guest requests are now made through the imaging system and go through an approved business officer or information security liaison who submits on behalf of the sponsor.

Since sponsored guest accounts grant access to University computers, systems and data, the new process will reduce potential data security risks.

  • Sponsors need to supply a copy of the guest’s photo ID (driver’s license, passport, state ID or green card).
  • For requests for non-U.S. citizens, work with the International Student and Scholars Office (ISSO) prior to submitting the request and attach the ISSO email indicating that process is complete
  • For vendor requests, review the contract with information security liaison prior to submitting the request
