We are pleased to announce new enhancements to the process of renewing sponsored University Computing Accounts. Sponsored accounts are intended to provide access to those individuals who are not eligible for a primary account but have legitimate business with the University that requires an account.
Faculty and staff who are the sponsors for these accounts may now use the accounts system to request that a sponsored account be renewed, request that an account’s expiration date be adjusted, or request that a new sponsor be assigned to an account.
To take advantage of these new features, account sponsors can log in to My Pitt (my.pitt.edu), click Manage My Account in the left-hand column, then click Sponsored Accounts and follow the directions on screen.
- If you need to renew an account, select Yes in the Renew column and provide a justification that describes the purpose for the account and explains how long you expect the account to be needed.
- If you need to request a change to an account’s expiration date or a change to an account’s sponsor, select Yes in the Renew column and describe the change in the Justification field.
Responsibility Center (RC) Account Administrators will remain responsible for reviewing and approving account renewals and other changes requested by the account sponsor. The interface RC Account Administrators use to review, approve, and process sponsored accounts will be enhanced to reflect whether an account sponsor has recommended an account for renewal and what justification the sponsor has provided.
Please contact the Technology Help Desk at 412-624-HELP  or online if you have any questions about this announcement.
