User IconSponsored Accounts

Sponsored Accounts are available for individuals who need computing access but are not otherwise eligible as an employee, student, or contracted agent. These users must be sponsored by a university department and there must be a direct relationship to the university academic mission or business function. Alumni and/or employee spouse or dependents not directly involved in the university mission are not eligible.

To obtain a sponsored account, the sponsored individual must first be entered into the university system by the Identity Management Office (, 334-844-4386). Once that has been done, any additional access needed should be requested through the sponsoring department's Administrative Computing Coordinator.

For additional information, please contact the OIT Accounts Administrator at
