How do I request access to Cascade?


Cascade Server is the web content management system used for all official web sites at St. Cloud State University.

Designated web editors within campus units are trained to use Cascade to manage content on their web sites. All edits made within Cascade are submitted to a workflow which is then reviewed by University Communications to maintain consistency and search engine optimization so that web sites remain usable, searchable and accessible.

Employees, including student employees and graduate assistance, need to request access to Cascade in order to edit their web sites.

  • Employees are granted access using their StarID credentials.
  • Student employees and graduate assistants are granted access using a supplemental account. Student employee accounts can not be used for Cascade access.


To request access to Cascade:

For editing access and Cascade training, email

Please include in your email request:

  • If employee: name and StarID
  • If student employee or graduate assistant: Supplemental account name that the student will be using. (Student employee accounts can not be used for Cascade access.)
    • Before requesting access:
      • Ensure the supplemental account has been assigned to the student employee or GA
      • If you do not yet have a supplemental account for this student employee or GA to use, request a new supplemental account.
        • When submitting a supplemental account request for Cascade access, check both "local account" and "shared mailbox" services.
  • What web site (name and URL) they need access to edit
