Requesting a long-term OHIO guest account

Description

A long-term OHIO guest account can be requested by anyone, including employees who are not paid through the University's Payroll department, to gain privileges such as, network access, library access, email, Blackboard, CommonSpot, WebCMS, and other academic or administrative services as deemed appropriate. This type of request can exist for up to one year with the option to regularly renew. Renewal notices are sent automatically, to the sponsor, two (2) weeks before the expiration.

    • Guest's passport or driver's license number

    • Issuing country and state for the passport or driver's license
