This document provides general instructions on how to complete and submit a Sponsored Guest Account Form.  For specific instructions on the content of the form, please contact your supervisor.  The Sponsored Guest Account Form is used to request online access to UNC Charlotte systems for people who do not have University identification.  To obtain access, a person must be sponsored.  Faculty and staff can sponsor guests; however only designated Business Officers and Information Security Liaison (ISLs) can submit a Sponsored Guest Account request.  A copy of the guest's photo ID (Driver's License, Passport, State ID or Green Card) must be attached with the submission.  Access can be requested for vendors.  For non-US citizen requests, contact the International Student and Scholar Office (ISSO) and the Export Control Office PRIOR to completing the Sponsored Guest Account Form. A form can be submitted once notification has been provided by the International Student and Scholar Office and the Export Control Office that all paperwork is complete.  See these FAQs for more details.
