SU Account

This is your typical account for a faculty, staff or student. This account gives a user access to
log in to all SU systems, including network, wireless, email, GullNet, MyClasses, and GullCard. 

• User should have a GullNet account and will have security roles
assigned.

Other information you should know.

• Students have access to their accounts for up to one year past graduation.

• Faculty have a 90 day grace period to access email and network drives after the end of their
contract. They lose access to GullNet at the end of their contract, however.

• Faculty retirees, or emeriti, continue to have email and network access (but not GullNet
access).

Alumni Account

When a student graduates or otherwise leaves the university, the student retains their SU account
for one year, after which it is disabled. For normal alumni, their account will be exactly the same
as an SU account.

Student Worker Accounts

Some departments have set up student worker accounts for their student employees. These accounts
begin with the prefix SW and are named for the department and are numbered, such as SWHelpdesk01.

Student worker accounts work like normal SU accounts when active, and remain active until either
the supervisor deactivates the account in GullNet, or the student’s contract expires.

•If the account is active, it should have the name and information of the
person to whom the account is assigned.

• If the account is blank or not assigned, the student should see their supervisor.

Faculty between contracts

As stated above, faculty who are in between contracts will keep their access to email and network
drives, but lose access to GullNet until the new contract is in. 

• If a faculty member has no security roles, they are in between contracts.

Applicants/Incoming Students

Students who have applied to the university, but have not yet had their full SU account created
will have a GullNet only account. This account will have the same username the student will
eventually use for his or her full SU account, but gives access only to GullNet. Once the student’s
full SU account is created, he or she will receive an email at the address he or she has on file
containing the new SU account password. At this point the GullNet only password will stop working.

• A student who is an applicant will have the Applicant Security Role as well as
having a non-SU email address.

• If the email is incorrect, please contact the Help Desk at 410-677-5454

• Once the SU account is created, the email address will change to the student’s SU email
address.

Temp/Guest Accounts

Temporary accounts, or guest accounts, are given to non-SU users to use our system. There are three
different ways a temporary account is used:

• Walk-in Accounts. These are used by individuals who request an account in person either at
the Library or the UC info desk. Guests who come to the IT Help Desk for a guest account should be
referred to the Library Circulation Desk.

• Events. Faculty and staff request accounts through the online ticketing system for use by
guest speakers and events. These come in as tickets and can be done well in advance.


• UMES/Wor-Wic students living in UP can request an account to use to access the SU network in
their residence. 

At no time should we be giving a guest account to an owner of an SU account. 

Temporary accounts are given the prefix sutemp and are numbered, such as sutemp200. The number
designates where the customer received the temp account.

Affiliate accounts

There is also a type of account called an affiliate account. This is an account provided to someone
working for SU, but not under contract with SU. Access granted is going to vary depending upon the
type of account.

• It will have the SU affiliate role

Some accounts are created for use only within MyClasses.
