Request Access to the Student Mart

Overview

Access to the Student Mart is governed by a Federated Authorization process that is designed to ensure users have access only to the data they require to fulfill their University responsibilities.

Technology Services has developed an online Federated Authorization process that makes requesting access faster and easier. It retains all the security and auditing benefits of the paper-based federated authorization process while eliminating the need to print paper forms, obtain handwritten signatures, and fax forms to additional approvers.

This Web page explains the online processes for requesting access to the Student Mart and for Requesting Restricted Access to the Student Mart.

Note: You need Student Mart access in order to request Restricted Access to the Student Mart.
