Requesting Access to USSS Applications & Data

This page provides information for requesting access to student data and USSS enterprise systems and applications. Every department has an access coordinator assigned that can aid in the request and training procedures for all systems and applications below. If you are a user and do not know who your access coordinator is, please use the Lookup Access Coordinator tool.

Prior to beginning this process, employees' paperwork must be processed by University Human Resource Services (UHRS) and employees must have created their first IU computing accounts. Three steps are required to gain access to institutional data and applications at IU:

Step 1 - Training & Agreements

Prior to gaining access to student data, the employee for whom access is requested must read and agree to appropriate data handling use statements outlined in the Acceptable Use Agreement for Access to Technology and Information Resources for Employees.

Common Training & Tutorials
