Other Student Group Resources
Before You Begin
- Your Student Group must be registered with Student Group Services and listed on BearsDen.
- New Student Group CCIDs can only be requested by a group’s primary contact or executive as per the group’s official group roster on BearsDen.
Important! If your Student Group is not listed on BearsDen, IST cannot issue you a CCID or reset its password.
- The Student Group should collectively decide who should request a Student Group’s CCID as the person requesting the CCID will be assigned administrative ownership of the CCID and will be responsible for the CCID’s administrative tasks outlined in this article.
Requesting a Student Group CCID
A Student Group’s executive or primary contact can request a CCID for their Student Group using the Request a Student Group CCID item in our Service Catalogue.
If your group is not registered with Student Groups Services nor in BearsDen but is sponsored by a specific department, you should talk to your department contact to get a CCID instead.
Renewing a Student Group CCID
Student Group CCIDs will have an expiration date of 1 year from the date they are created. The person requesting the CCID will be assigned administrative ownership of the CCID and be the person responsible for the annual renewal of the CCID. The administrative owner will get an email 30 days prior to its expiration date. This email will include a link to a work item in our identity management system where they can renew the CCID by simply clicking the “Renew CCID” button in the linked work item.
IMPORTANT! If a CCID is not renewed, it and all data therein will be permanently deleted 30 days after its expiration date. It is important to action the renewal emails as soon as possible.
Tip! If the CCID and its data is no longer required, the work item will also have a button to delete the CCID.
Changing Ownership of a Student Group CCID
The administrative owner of a Student Group CCID should always be a group’s primary contact or executive as per the group’s official group roster on BearsDen. If the current administrative owner is leaving the group or no longer associated with the group, this ownership needs to be transferred to someone who is.
To change the administrative ownership of a Student Group CCID, the CCID's owner or a Student Group's executive or primary contact can complete and submit the Change Ownership of a Student Group CCID item in our Service Catalogue.
Managing access to your Student Group CCID
As the CCID is issued to a student group, multiple people may need access, it is recommended that access is provided using mailbox delegation.
Only one group member should have access to the actual CCID password.
Requesting a password reset for a Student Group CCID
If the password for a student group CCID has been forgotten, a group’s primary contact or executive as per the official group roster in BearsDen can request a password reset using the “Student Group CCID Password Reset” service catalogue item.
Requesting additional email addresses (aliases) for a Student Group CCID
You can request an email alias from the MyCCID Email Aliases page when logged in with the Student Group CCID. Please note the email alias must be over 8 characters long or contain a period and must represent your Student Group in some way. Ex. firstname.lastname@example.org
