Elon University computer accounts provide access to University information resources. These accounts provide a means of providing accountability for information resources usage. The creation, control, and monitoring of all technology accounts are extremely important to Elon University’s overall security program.
The Elon University Account Management Policy applies equally to all individuals with authorized access to any electronic information resources and systems.
All faculty, staff, students, and full time employee accounts are automatically created once the appropriate hiring forms are complete. All Elon University accounts must be uniquely identifiable using the assigned user name. All default passwords for accounts must be constructed in accordance with the Elon University Password Policy.
All special accounts created must have an associated request and approval that is appropriate for the Elon University system or service.
