Affiliate accounts can be granted to those not employed by the university or enrolled as students who have a legitimate need to access university resources.
Affiliate accounts can access email (by request), wireless and university applications such as webBASIS. Most affiliations are short-term and end within a year.
Request Affiliate Account
To get started, request a University ID for the affiliate. A date of birth is required for all affiliates, and non-academic affiliates must also provide a Social Security number.
Contact the academic unit with which they will be affiliated, or contact the Office of the Registrar at 479-575-5451 or email@example.com. Academic affiliates include visiting speakers, researchers and faculty.
Contact the leave administrator of the department with which they will be affiliated. Non-academic affiliates include vendors, contractors, consultants and those with an athletics affiliation.
Activate Affiliate Account
Once the affiliate receives a University ID, they can activate the account at newuser.uark.edu.
To request email for an existing affiliate account, use the Exchange Mailbox Request form.
Affiliate Internet Access
A UARK account is not necessary for guests to access the unsecured wireless network UARK Guest Wi-Fi. Those visiting from eduroam participating institutions can also connect to the eduroam wireless network.
