IT Account Request Forms
Authentication and access to many UCSF IT systems is governed by Microsoft Active Directory (aka network logon accounts). Requests for new Active Directory accounts or modifications to existing accounts needs to be done online via an online Account Request Form (ARF). There are currently several different online forms, each specific to the account type being requested and where the account is is being hosted, or where the required resource resides.
The three current ARF forms are the Medical Center ARF, Campus/SOM ARF, and the SFGH ARF. Your request will route to one of several account provisioning groups depending which form was used.
Please note: we strive to complete 80% of the requests within 3 business days. The length of time depends on the complexity of the request and responsivenss of other teams.
