This document provides general instructions on how to complete and submit a bulk request on the Sponsored Guest Account Form.  For specific instructions on the content of the form, please contact your supervisor.  The Sponsored Guest Account Form is used to request online access to UNC Charlotte systems for people who do not have University identification.  To obtain access, a person must be sponsored.  Faculty and staff can sponsor guests; however only designated Business Officers and Information Security Liaison (ISLs) can submit a Sponsored Guest Account request.  Additionally, only users included in the Perceptive Content security group OneITSGA Processor - BULK can submit bulk requests.  A copy of the guest's photo ID (Driver's License, Passport, State ID or Green Card) must be attached with the submission.  Access can be requested for vendors.  For non-US citizen requests, contact the International Student and Scholar Office (ISSO) and the Export Control Office PRIOR to completing the Sponsored Guest Account Form. A form can be submitted once notification has been provided by the International Student and Scholar Office and the Export Control Office that all paperwork is complete.  See these FAQs for more details.

System Access Restrictions
