Access Request Form Procedure

To request access to an application or system, click on the appropriate "access request form" from the list below. You will need to complete a separate request form for each application. ITS grants access specific to your role and responsibilities, so you will be asked to describe the functionality for which you have a business need.

Changing Access

Changes in access privileges may be required if an employee is assigned different job duties, transfers to a different department, or leaves the University.

  • Employees requesting additional access should use the Access Request Forms above
  • To remove access from an employee, send an email to the ITS Service Desk at [email protected] and provide specific information on the type of change needed.

Student Access

Students on the Dearborn campus set their own uniqnames using a self-service application via the web. As soon as their uniqname is set, a U-M account is set up for them automatically.

Note: if a new student already has a uniqname from a previous relationship with the university, they will reactivate their existing uniqname during the setup process rather than creating a new one.

Email reminders are sent (two weeks apart) if the student does not set a uniqname and password, until the start of the term.

Office Printers

Office Printers are managed via MCommunity. To get access to a printer, you must be added to that specific printer’s MCommunity group, which is handled by someone in the department where the printer is located. Please see the following guide for more information:

Groupshare access

To get access to a groupshare, you must be added to that specific printer’s MCommunity group, which is handled by someone in the department.
