Active Directory (WUAD) Accounts

ITS Provides individual accounts (usernames and passwords) for faculty, staff, students and selected affiliates. This account is referred to as your WUAD account. Affiliate accounts are subject to approval by the CIO.

Guest Accounts

Guest accounts can be made available for temporary use by non-affiliated users:

  • Please provide two (2) weeks prior notice when such accounts will be needed.
  • The requestor or a mutually agreed 3rd party will be responsible for providing account information to guest users and for ensuring guests are aware of and abide by the Washburn acceptable use policy.

Service Accounts

Service accounts can be made available for automated functions and require enhanced security:

  • Passwords must be protected and not stored in plain text.
  • An authorized individual is required to be assigned as a functional and/or technical contact.

ITS will assist in developing and implementing access control based on WUAD logons for computers, network shares, and other WUAD-managed resources. In order to ensure effective long-term support, ITS will work with the requestor to provide access based on functional responsibilities rather than based on individual user names.
