Individual Guest NetIDs are available ONLY for individuals with a UNM department approved association who will NOT be listed in the Banner system. The NetID will provide only basic e-mail and network access. Additional access for library online database or VPN services may be added if approved by the designated area. The Individual Guest NetID will be tied to the department sponsor's information and they must approve any future password resets.
IMPORTANT: If access is needed for Learning Central or other services that require Banner provisioning, please contact the appropriate data entry station to have an affiliate role created for the guest instead of applying for an Individual Guest NetID. When the Banner role is updated, the guest will be able to create a UNM NetID online the following day. See FastInfo #6276, Learning Central visitor access for specifics.
The requestor should be the department sponsor of the account. This person will also have to approve any future password resets on the NetID. For example, a visiting scholar is working with a UNM professor on a special project and needs network access. The Professor will be the department sponsor in this case. Her Department Chair will authorize the account.
The approver should be the UNM department chair or program director. Per policy, only UNM department chairs, program directors, or equivalent positions can authorize Individual Guest NetIDs.
If the UNM guest is going to be listed in the Banner system soon OR needs a Banner services such as LoboCard and Learning Central, the department should contact the appropriate data entry station to find out how to have the guest's affiliate role processed. The day after the Banner role is updated, the guest will be listed as an affiliate in the accounts database and the guest will be able to create a UNM NetID.
Some example cases of when the Individual Guest NetID would be appropriate:
Yes, the Individual Guest NetID can be moved at any time to another sponsor's information or to the guest if they are listed in Banner in the future.
After the request has been saved, the information goes to IT to review. For Individual Guest NetIDs, an approval request e-mail will be sent with instructions to the e-mail address listed under Approver Information.
When IT receives the approval, the creation process will start. The requestor should be ableto track the status of their request by logging in to Help.UNM.
