Faculty/Staff: Your ASU Technology Access Account
Listed below are accounts which are routinely created for new employees, along with optional accounts that may be requested.
Technology Access Account – A network account allows you access to the server or privileged access, i.e., additional drives or printers in your office. Your network account also grants access to computers found in classrooms, student computer labs. The format is currently your first initial followed by the first 15 characters of your last name (or your entire last name if shorter than 15 characters). If this username is already in use, a “one up” number is added to the end of the account name to make it unique. This password can be changed from your office when you are prompted or via the change web password page.
Change Technology Access Account Name – If you have legally changed your last name or you discover that your name was misspelled in your technology access account user name you can update and correct your username. You can open a Technology Service Center request to make the change. This will have an impact on several accounts so you need to be sure that this will be right for you.
E-mail account – This is your account for University use. Typically your e-mail address is your firstname.lastname@example.org. RamPort is our student preference for e-mail access. Outlook/Exchange now available for faculty, staff and some student workers.
As a supervisor, Department Head, Director or Dean, you may request new access for new staff/faculty/student workers and/or request to update/delete a current employee’s level of access. For either process, you will need to do the following.
- Fill out and sign the Request for Access to Banner form for the employee. If in your request for access you are asking for permission for an employee to view or update data that is not under your direct control, you will need to complete and attach the second page of the Banner ID Request form (Permission for access crossing another department) when submitting your request.
- Forward the form(s) (by campus mail or by fax) to your Head Data Custodian within your functional area for approval.
- Your Head Data Custodian will review/approve the form(s) and upon signing them, will forward the Banner ID Request form(s) to the Information Technology department. A copy of the request will be retained by the Head Data Custodian.
- The Banner ID and password will be sent to the employee in a sealed envelope.
