CICS Access Requests
CICS contains sensitive information. As a result, access is only provided on request to those who have a demonstrated need for access.
To receive access, your department head must send a memorandum to the Computing Center (located at Wyly Tower 116). This memorandum should clearly identify:
- The individual(s) who needs access,
- The screen(s)/functions to which they need access, and
- The reason why access is needed.
Once received, there are three stages/offices that must authorize your request before a CICS account is created. For this reason, obtaining a new UserID for a new faculty member can take up to two weeks.
