Temporary Computer Account Requests

Employees who have a Personnel Account Form (PAF) submitted do not need a request form done for them. Their PAF is the computer account request form.


If a computer account is needed by someone who is not a full or part-time employee of the University, a Temporary Account Request Form must be fill out and submited to I.T. Services.

Temporary or permanent employees of the CATF, Byrd CLS, Shepherd University Foundation, or a temp service must have this form filled out and submitted.

For other temporary account needs, please contact the Director of I.T. Services.

** Timeframe note: We must have the account request forms at least two weeks before the accounts are needed.

Accounts are created by a batch process, so under no circumstances can accounts be created immediately. **


Here are the steps to follow to request a Temporary Computer Account:

  1. Print out a Temporary Computer Account Request Form for each person who needs an account.
  2. Fill out one for each person.
  3. Sign each one.
  4. Return them to the Human Resources office located in the HR building.

If you need accounts for an outside group, such as conference attendees, who have no affiliation with the University, please go to the Outside Group Request Page for details.
