Other Account Request Forms
Please submit Account requests at least three business days in advance.
The ISO is currently researching a system to allow users to request admin rights on a temporary self-service basis. In the meantime, if you require administrative rights over an endpoint, please contact the
Information Security Office
to make a request directly. Requests for admin access should provide a demonstrable business need for the elevation. This is not the appropriate process for requesting to install software, as every piece of software must be vetted
by IT Purchasing and the Information Security Office.
This form is used to begin the approval process for an account that can be given to a presenter or presenters for a workshop, conference, or presentation. It may be used for students taking such a course as well. In both cases, requesting individual account for each presenter/instructor or attendee is preferred, but an account can be shared with approval and adherence to compensating controls, which will be presented upon review of this request. Please fill out the required fields. Once done, the request will be sent to the Information Security Office for review.
Use this form to request an account that will be utilized by a
group of individuals, or by individuals filling a specific role. For example, a vendor for the university who provides a service or support for their product and plans to issue the account to a group of service support individuals. Issuing these accounts requires compliance with approved compensating controls and are only allowable in cases where there is a demonstrable technical need.
Use this form to request an account for
individuals who do not have an appointment with the university, but require access to an IT asset due to a contract, affiliation, volunteer agreement, or other institutional or federative arrangement. This include
contractors, visiting lecturers, students from other institutions, UW System employees, and volunteers.
This form should also be used to request
conferences, workshops and other events.
Note: The form linked here is only the second part of the process for these accounts. You must first complete the request in DIMS to begin the provisioning process, then complete the form here to obtain the necessary approvals. DIMS can be found
If you already have a UWSP domain account and wish to request access to additional systems, complete the linked form to initiate the request. For example, if you need to be added to a SharePoint group, or require access to additional modules in AccessPoint. The request process will send notification to the system administrators and approvers responsible for those systems. You will receive notification when the approval is complete.
