New Employees: Getting an Access ID

Below is the procedure for new employees to get an Access Account userid and password (also referred to as an “Access ID”). Please contact Vinelle Johnson  at vzj1@psu.edu or Caroline Chronowski at cxs22@psu.edu you have any questions about this process.

  1. The new employee needs to print and fill out an Access Account application. The application can be found at http://aset.its.psu.edu/accounts/accountsforms/AccessAccountForm.pdf .
  2. Once the form is filled out and signed by the supervisor (if necessary), it should be faxed by the hiring department or the campus business office to the ITS Accounts office at University Park at 814-865-9289.  It takes about 3 days for the ITS Accounts office to process the application.
  3. After 3 days, the new employee can go to a Signature Station with their PSU ID Card to get his or her userid and password.  Signature station locations: http://identity.psu.edu/services/authentication-services/access-accounts/ If a new employee does not have a PSU ID Card, they can obtain one at the Penn State Security Office.
