Guest Accounts


Guest accounts, also known as Affiliate accounts are for those individuals, who by the nature of their relationship to UST, do not have HR paperwork to complete but require access to University resources.
The use of the Guest and Affiliate accounts is primarily for a vendor or contractor of the University that will not be paid directly in the form of payroll.

Definition of an Affiliate

Affiliates are individuals who have a recognized university role that does not include an employment appointment, student status, or wage payment by the University but that does require the individual to have university resources up to and including an end point. For example, some affiliates are under contract with the University to provide special services, such as those provided by independent contractors (consultants) and temporary agency employees. Other affiliates include volunteers, certain types of visiting scholars, Emeriti faculty, and representatives of ROTC, St. John Vianney, and the Credit Union.
