UAConnect: Dean/Director Approval of a Security Request

When an electronic security request is created and submitted, verification of the user’s eligibility to access the system is processed. Once the user has been determined eligible, the request is routed electronically to the user’s Dean/Director for approval.

This document provides instruction to the Dean/Director for approving or declining the security request.
