Custom Role (Affiliate) Account/Access Request

Service Description

People who are neither students or Mines employees and who require access to Mines institutional resources may be granted an Affiliate user account. The Custom Role form initiates the process to provide affiliates with the services they need by enabling entry into our administrative data system and assignment of a Campus-Wide Identification Number or “CWID.” A CWID is necessary to obtain many services on campus, including a BlasterCard. (This form will NOT provide those services by itself.)
