Members of the ISU Community (students and employees) are automatically eligible for an ISU Net-ID. All other Net-IDs must be sponsored.
There are currently four types of sponsored Net-IDs.
|Affiliate||For an individual who is not a current employee or student, but for whom an ISU business reason exists for them to have a Net-ID. One common use is for visting professors and researchers. Another common use is to temporarily extend the use of an existing Net-ID upon an employee leaving the university by converting their Normal Net-ID to an Affiliate Net-ID.|
|Role||A Net-ID which is used (potentially by multiple employees) to perform an ISU business function. Usually it is intended to outlast the tenure of any given employee.|
|Secondary||An additional Net-ID for a student employee to separate their work from their studies (usually used to provide them with an Exchange mailbox).|
|Emeritus||When a faculty member leaves the university with emeritus status they are permitted to keep their Net-ID so long as they renew it each year (self-sponsorship).|
Several people may play a part in the sponsorship of a Net-ID.
|Requester||The person who initiates the sponsorship (or sponsorship renewal) request.|
|Sponsored||The person who will use the sponsored Net-ID (or the Role to be performed by a Role Net-ID).|
|Sponsor||The person responsible for ending the sponsored Net-ID when the business reason for it to exist has ended.|
|Approver||The person responsible for approving the sponsorship (and renewal) of Affiliate and Role Net-IDs. Approvers are University Administrative Officers and their Delegates.|
- The Requester makes a request to create/renew a Sponsored Net-ID, nominating a Sponsor.
- If the request is for an Affiliate or Role Net-ID and the Requester is not a University Administrative Officer then they choose an Approver to route the request to.
- The Approver may approve, deny, or re-route the request.
- An Approver is not required for a Secondary Net-ID.
- Often the Requester is the same person as the Sponsor.
- The Requester and the Approver may not be the same person unless they are a University Administrative Officer.
- The Sponsor must be a "Normal" Employee Net-ID.
The following table summarizes several aspects of the provisioning and deprovisioning of Net-IDs.
|Net-ID||————— Sponsorship —————|
|Type||For||Who May Request||Who May Approve||Renewal Period||Suspension||Normal

|Current Students||n/a||n/a||n/a||Sem After Last Enrolled|
|Secondary||Student Employees||Supervisor||not required||Each Feb. & Sep.||If not renewed, or with the Student's Primary Net-ID|
|Emeritus||Emeritus Faculty||Self||not required||Each Sep.||If not renewed|

- AO refers to ISU Administrative Officers.
- If an AO makes a sponsorship request, no other approval is needed.
- An AO may delegate approval authority to any employee.
- A delegate may not approve their own sponsorship/request.
- Here the term "Any Employee" excludes C&XH-base employees.
- Here "Sem" ignores Summer sessions.
- Current Students include incoming students and those registered the previous semester.
