Information Provider FAQs
Do I need to fill out a new form in order to have access to multiple departments?
Yes. For each new department, you will need to fill out a new application and get it approved by each department's head.
Can I have a student worker or graduate assistant act as an IP for my department?
Yes - if the student worker or grad assistant is working under the direct supervision of an employee. Students who would like to become IPs on behalf of a department will need a valid sw or ga account. Students will need to apply for and receive the sw or ga account first, then they may apply to be an IP using their sw or ga credentials.
Remember, employees may use student workers to assist with the web site, but the ultimate responsibility for the departmental web site falls to an employee, not a student.
