Common questions

I am still in my position, but I received an email, "Notice: Your UBIT Services are Changing." What should I do?

  1. Ask an administrative staff member in your department to contact the UBIT Help Center and confirm their intent to renew your appointment. They can request a temporary extension of your UBITName to allow time for an appointment to be processed by HR.
  2. After the UBIT Help Center processes the request, your UBITName can be used to access UBIT services for up to 60 days pending processing of a new appointment by HR.
  3. Once the new appointment is processed by HR, your UBITName can be used to access UBIT services for the length of your appointment.

I had access to UBIT services in the 60 and Over Auditors program, but I received an email, "Notice: Your UBIT Services are Changing." What should I do?

Contact the Office of the Registrar to re-enroll in the 60 and Over Auditors Program. Once enrolled you will be granted access to UBIT services.

If you are not enrolled for the current semester, you will no longer have access to UBIT services or UBmail.
