Sponsored Account Requests

This service provides workstation access and “neu.edu” email access to visiting professors, lecturers, contractors, consultants and related roles.

  • Two weeks before expiration of a sponsored account, both the sponsor and sponsoree will be notified by email. In the email, instructions are provided for account renewal.
