Affiliates of the University may request an exception account to gain access to OU email, network resources, and other services.
Exception accounts require annual approval and must be sponsored by a director or chair of the affiliated department or college.
- To request a new exception account, please visit the Service Catalog and submit an "Account Request" Please note that requests may take 5-7 days to process.
- To request to renew or delete an exception account, visit the Service Catalog and submit a “Renew/Delete Account Request” Please submit this form at least 7 days prior to the account expiration date to avoid possible service interruption or loss of data.
Please note that exception accounts may only be extended for up to 1 year at a time unless otherwise approved by the Provost or OU IT Security team. Affiliates of NOAA must request the renewal of their account every five years to remain active in the system.
