Student Worker Accounts

What is an XST account?

XST accounts are student worker accounts, separate from their main account, that can be configured to provide special access needed for student employment positions. These are secure accounts that can be configured for use on specific computers during designated times of the day. 

Getting Started

Only full-time St. Thomas employees can request an XST account on behalf of a student worker.

Note: XST accounts will expire at the start of every fall semester.

Be sure to including the following information for each student worker when requesting an account:

  • Username
  • Time restrictions
  • Computer asset number that student needs access too

Just need your student worker to have access to your department's files and systems?

Simply reference the student's username when sending an email to the Tech Desk that includes the shared folders or systems they will need access to. When students need certain administrative privileges in order to complete their job duties, an XST account can be requested for their needs. Consult your department tech for more information on when an additional account is the right fit for your needs.
