How do I Create a New Supplemental Account


How to create a new supplemental account



What is a supplemental account?

  • Departments, centers, programs and student organizations can request a supplemental account for access to file/web space, D2L Brightspace, wireless network, library proxy, MNPALS, Cascade/web editing access and more.
  • Student organization accounts need to be requested and managed by their faculty/staff adviser.
  • Faculty/staff are responsible for activity that occurs under the supplemental accounts assigned to them.
  • If email is needed with an account, please check the Shared Mailbox option when requesting the account.
    • Note email is set up separately and will come in a different email sent to the requester when this set up is completed. 
  • Student employees and graduate assistants, that need access to Cascade for editing departmental web sites, will need to use a supplemental account including "local account" and "shared mailbox" services. (Cascade access is not available directly through student employee accounts.)


** Remote/Off-campus access: Users must be connected through Direct Access (Windows) or VPN (Mac) to use this application from off campus. **
