This page explains the online Access Request Form process. Requests may be sent to four groups:

  1. Employee ID  – This form should be used for account requests and deactivations for AU Affiliate personnel*, sponsored guest accounts, and the faculty role for graduate teaching assistants (GTAs). There is no need to complete this form to obtain an account for faculty, staff and students.

  2. Parking Services – This form should be used for parking hangtag requests and deactivations for AU Affiliate personnel* and temporary employees (TES). There is no need to complete this form to obtain parking permits for faculty, staff and students.

  3. Access Control – This form should be used for All Access Control (key and card swipe) requests, including faculty staff, students and affiliates.

  4. Library – This form should be used for library access for AU Affiliate personnel* and TES. There is no need to complete this form to obtain library access for faculty, staff, and students.

* Affiliates are non-student, non-AU employees, who are associated with, but not paid by Auburn University. They are individuals such as contractors, cooperating staff, residents, interns, visiting scholars, research collaborators, visiting students with a special program, volunteers, alumni, aquatic clients, library patrons, OLLI, AU Medical Clinic employees, AU Federal Credit Union employees, etc.

Deans, Directors, Department Heads, Affiliate Sponsors and Alternate Approvers

If you are a dean, director, department head, affiliate sponsor or an alternate approver created by one of the aforementioned groups of individuals, you may create Alternate Approvers or Form Submitters using the process below.

Form Submitter

Form Submitters can complete the Access Request Form on behalf of a dean, director, department head, affiliate sponsor or an alternate approver. However, their requests have to be approved by the dean, director, department head, affiliate sponsor or an alternate approver before it can move forward.

Create a Form Submitter (Reminder, you must be a a dean, director, department head, affiliate sponsor or an alternate approver to create Form Submitters)

Alternate Approver

Alternate Approvers can complete the Access Request form on behalf of a dean, director, department head or affiliate sponsor. Their requests do not have to be approved by the dean, director, department head or affiliate sponsor before it can move forward.

Create an Alternate Approver (Reminder, you must be a dean, director, department head or affiliate sponsor to create Alternate Approvers.)

  • Only authorized users are able to submit access request forms on behalf of university affiliates/community card holders.

  • Authorized users of the Access Request Form include deans, directors, department heads, “Alternate Approvers” and “Form Submitters.”

  • If you are an authorized user, click the orange bar at the top of the screen that reads “Access Request Form."

Deans, directors, and department heads may add or delete users from processing Access Request Form requests. Check with your respective departmental contact.

The department head will be the “owner” of the list, which is maintained by the department. The process steps are the same for both. In the top left of the column, they are both listed.
