How to set up a UAccess guess account
You are encouraged to set up a Guest Center account for parents or others in your life who may want or need access to information in your Student Center account. Setting up a Guest Center account avoids you having to give anyone else your UA NetID password. Because sharing your password presents a security risk, doing so is against university policy.
To set up a Guest Center account:
- Go to http://uaccess.arizona.edu, click on Student Center in the Students column, and log in with your UA NetID and password.
- Go to the UA Guest Center box in the right column (toward the bottom), and click on Guest Manager.
- To create a new Guest account, click the Add New Guest button. You will also come back here later and edit existing Guest accounts.
- Enter information for your Guest: create a username for them to use to log in and enter their email address and name.
- Click Active to make their account functional once it is created.
- In the Guest Access Control section, choose what information you want this Guest to have access to:
- Academic Info (View Class Schedule, Grades, Transfer Credits, Program Tree)
- Personal Info (View All Addresses, Emergency Contacts)
- Financial Info (View To-Do List, Award Summary including Award Letter, Make Payment, and Parent Plus Loan).
- Click the Save button.
- Click the OK button to activate the account on the Confirm Activation page. (Click the Cancel button if you are not ready to activate this Guest, and the information from the previous page will be saved for you to come back and activate later).
Once the account is activated, an email will be sent to your Guest with the username and password. Your Guest can go to uaccess.arizona.edu, click on Guest Center in the Students column, and log in with the username and password provided. They will be able to see and do only what you have permitted in Guest Access Control.

Your UA NetID is your personal identifier for several online services at the University of Arizona. Some of the services requiring a NetID include:
- Email and UITS computing accounts (CatMail, UAConnect, HPC)
- UAccess applications (Student, Employee, Analytics, etc.)
- D2L – a web-based course management system used in 700+ courses on campus
- New Employee Resources and Benefits Enrollment
- University site-licensed software
- OSCR computer labs
Why is the UA NetID necessary?
The UA NetID verifies your identity when used for the University of Arizona’s online services. It helps ensure the privacy of personal information and restricts the use of resources to those for whom they are intended.
If you are a student who needs to share information in your UAccess Student account with someone else, establish a Guest Center account for those you want to share your information with and keep your NetID password private.
How to create your UA NetID
Creating a UA NetID requires an EMPLID, an 8-digit number provided via email. If the EMPLID is unknown, the user must contact HR (for staff and faculty) or the Registrar (for students). Because the EMPLID is a secure identifier, the 24/7 IT Support Center will not provide an EMPLID to a user.
Creating a NetID also requires a date of birth and a PIN. For students, the PIN is on the letter of acceptance.
- Select “Create UA NetID”
- Follow the instructions to create your UA NetID.
