Exception New Account or Change Request

General Information

Exception or vendor accounts can be created upon request to be used by external-to-CMU users (users that do not already have an active Global ID account) when normal guest accounts will not suffice. Exception accounts can be used to access CMU systems like Blackboard, and can be requested to include an accompanying cmich.edu email account. Be prepared to provide the following information when requesting this type of account:

  • Campus ID (if applicable)
  • Full name
  • Date of birth (for identity verification purposes)
  • Last four digits of Social Security Number (for identity verification purposes)
  • Contact information (such as phone number and email address of a CMU user that can authorize your account creation)
  • Start and end dates (how long you will require a CMU account. Max of 1 year with the ability to extend)
  • Your contact information (valid phone number at which you may be reached to relay account information once it is created)
  • Contact information for department chair or director who will act as a sponsor

To request a new Exception account, request a change to an existing account, or to report a problem with an existing account, click the Request Assistance button.
