Tulane Access Accounts

Employees are entitled to one account, which will provide access to e-mail and other systems. This account is automatically created by the Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) when faculty and staff records are entered into the University's HR/Payroll system. Every employee will be entitled to one account/e-mail address. The departmental hiring manager is responsible for entering the personal information of the new employee into the HR/Payroll system.

Student accounts are created once a student has been entered into Banner as a matriculated student. Every matriculated student will be entitled to one account/e-mail address. The Admissions Office enters the personal information for the newly matriculated students into Banner.
