Sponsored UCInetIDs

If you are temporarily affiliated with UCI, teaching, doing research with faculty, or have another valid reason (as determined by OIT), you can obtain a Sponsored UCInetID. You will need a UCI faculty or management-level staff sponsor who will apply for the account on your behalf.

Sponsored UCInetID Qualifications

To obtain a Sponsored UCInetID, you must meet the following qualifications:

If a Sponsored UCInetID holder becomes a student or faculty/staff member in the future, the Sponsored UCInetID entry will be automatically converted to the new type. Sponsored UCInetID holders have the same privileges as faculty/staff, including an e-mail account, access to Library services, and other campus services.

» Sponsored UCInetID Application
  • Apply for a Sponsored UCInetID (Sponsor Login Required)
    The Sponsor will need to know the date of birth and Social Security Number of the person sponsored.

Sponsored UCInetID Creation Process

  • Once your application has been processed, you will be assigned a UCInetID and a Sponsored ID Number.
  • The Sponsor will be notified via e-mail when the Sponsored ID Number and UCInetID have been assigned.
  • The OIT Help Desk or your Sponsor can inform you of your UCInetID and ID Number once it has been assigned. This information is important and needed to activate your account.

UCInetID Activation

  • Your UCInetID must be activated before it can be used. The activation process allows you to identify yourself and set a private password for your UCInetID.
  • Your Sponsored ID Number is required to activate your UCInetID.
  • For more information, see the UCInetID Activations section on the OIT Home Page.

As a member of the UCI and worldwide electronic community, you are expected to follow UCI's Computer Use Policy. Activating your UCInetID signifies acceptance of this policy.

» Quarterly Sponsor Renewal Process

Sponsored UCInetIDs are sponsored on a quarterly basis, for a maximum of 4 quarters at a time.

Renewal Notification

Approximately one month before the end of each quarter, sponsors will receive an e-mail message as a reminder to renew Sponsored UCInetIDs. Both sponsor and the person sponsored will be notified about the upcoming expiration of the UCInetID.

The sponsor must review the list of UCInetIDs he or she is responsible for and renew the sponsorship for up to four additional quarters at a time.

» Updates to Sponsored UCInetID Holders
  • If a Sponsored UCInetID holder becomes an employee or student, his or her electronic directory record will be converted to the appropriate type, student or employee.
  • If a student or employee that was previously sponsored for a UCInetID loses his or her student or employee status, the sponsored UCInetID will be re-instated for one quarter. From that point, the quarterly renewal process takes over again.
